Neal's police procedurals, starring multicultural female sleuths Lei and Sophie, explore the crimes and issues of Hawaii and have sold well over a million copies.

Neal focuses on mystery/thriller, but also writes romance and a line of apocalyptic romance thrillers, the Scorch Series, with Emily Kimelman.
