Primitive Secrets by Deborah Turrell Atkinson

Primitive Secrets by Deborah Turrell Atkinson
A Storm Kayama Mystery (1st in series)
Publisher: Poisoned Pen Press

When Storm Kayama walks into her lucrative Honolulu law firm one morning, she's shocked — and grieved — to find her adopted uncle at his desk, stiff and cold. Years before, Miles Hamasaki had fulfilled a promise to Storm's father and brought her to be raised with his own family. But, as questions surround Miles' death and her adopted family begins to close ranks, Storm suspects that he has been murdered.

Heading to the Big Island for a weekend escape from escalating pressures, she narrowly escapes a terrible accident. Storm takes refuge in the home of her Aunt Maile, a traditional Hawaiian healer, and Uncle Keone, a paniolo on the huge Parker Ranch. There she encounters a legend from her youth and a family totem, or 'aumakua, which Aunt Maile promises will protect her. As Storm struggles to heal her own childhood wounds and bring justice to Hamasaki's killer, she also comes to grip with the rifts in her own life and culture.

The Green Room by Deborah Turrell Atkinson

Also available: The second mystery in this series, The Green Room, priced at just $2.99 (as of the date and time of this post, 02/27/2013 at 2:30 PM ET).

Storm Kayama needs to build her clientele, so when surf promoter Marty Barstow's wife walks into her new law office, Storm agrees to represent her. It looks like a bitter divorce situation, but Storm feels for Stephanie, who seems lonely and frightened.

When Stephanie's son Ben, a promising surfer, invites her to O‘ahu's North Shore to watch a surfing contest, Storm jumps at the chance. Not only will it be a thrill to observe the meet, but Storm will also have the opportunity to watch a distant cousin compete. Nahoa Pi‘ilani has grown from a mischievous kid to a surfer of international renown, and he seems to have put the trouble that once brewed between their families behind him.

Then a child delivers a package to Nahoa. Inside the plain wrapper is an ancient Hawaiian weapon, a wooden club encircled with shark's teeth. Storm recognizes the lei o manĊ. It's a threat, a call to battle.

Soon, as if she were in the green room — the underwater space where tons of churning water can imprison a surfer — Storm is buffeted and disoriented by local legend, greed, and cutthroat competition, and must confront a killer and a haunting incident from her past.
