Deborah Atkinson's mysteries portray an insider's view of Hawai'i, a perspective the tour books never show. Featuring attorney Storm Kayama, the novels lead the reader off the beaten trail and expose not only the dark side of human nature, but the legends and folklore of the islands and the unique vulnerability of living on an island chain.

Debby lives in Honolulu, Hawaii, with her husband and their two teenage sons. A recipient of the University of Hawaii's Meryl Clark Award for Fiction, she is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and the author of Primitive Secrets (2002), The Green Room (2005), and Fire Prayer (2007).
