    Having been brought up on crime novels, I can be a bit particular about books in the genre With the genre saturated with middle aged, white male detectives with failed marriages and a penchant for the bottle, few protagonists in crime novels are memorable enough for me to sit up and take notice of them.Lei Texeira is one such protagonist Far from being just a pretty face and a pretty name , Leilani Texeira is a plucky, intrepid policewoman haunted by her past Driven and ambitious, Lei aspir Having been brought up on crime novels, I can be a bit particular about books in the genre With the genre saturated with middle aged, white male detectives with failed marriages and a penchant for the bottle, few protagonists in crime novels are memorable enough for me to sit up and tak...
