What a ride! Nov. 5 2005
By Michelle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Reading Ms. Turrell Atkinson's second book was like visiting with friends who have a much more exciting life than me. Storm is a wonderful character and her adventure at a surf contest on the North Shore of Oahu is a wild ride and an excellent read.

The romantic tension between Storm and Hamlin escalates in this book as they start their own law practice. A new client's son brings out Storm's love of surfing. Entrants in a surfing contest are dying with ominous Hawaiian lore left in their wake. It becomes personal when Storm's relative is one of the victims.

I live in Hawaii and love the local flavors, dialect and customs the author weaves in her stories. This book gave me the feeling of being right on the beach watching the surfers compete.

The tension was tightly written, and when Storm was caught in the "green room" I was afraid I wouldn't be able to catch my own breath.

I enjoyed this book very much and am already looking forward to reading what happens next to Storm and company.

The Green Room Nov. 6 2006
By Aunt Lydia - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The author keeps the reader's attention by introducing new characters at key times in the story. she writes well and has obviously researched the action part. I learned a lot about a sport in which I had no interest before. This book is hard to put down.

I will certainly look forward to the next book written about the heroine, Storm.

The suspense leaves you breathless April 18 2006
By Cindy Chow - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In The Green Room, Storm Kayama's second appearance since Primitive Secrets (2002), the part-Hawaiian attorney accepts what looks to be an ugly divorce case and ends up in the midst of a North Shore surfing competition where the most promising contestant is being threatened by an ancient war club. Since Nahoa Pi'ilani is her cousin Storm finds herself both emotionally and professionally involved and surfing rivalries, ancient Hawaiian lore, and a hefty surfing prize all result in the perfect combination for murder. Honolulu resident Deborah Turrell Atkinson once again crafts a suspenseful novel with descriptions of the Hawaiian surf scene that will have the reader gasping for air.

Catch a wave...and a mystery Dec 8 2005
By M. Komatsu - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Deborah Atkinson uses powerful imagery and well executed action scenes to create an enjoyable and engaging novel. A scary mystery, the competitive surfing culture and ancient Hawaiian folklore combine to give a unique experience. Storm Kayama, the main character, is so nice so effectively portrayed that I wish I could have her for my own best friend. Take this book, a glass of wine, a comfy chair, per-fect!

The Green Room

By Deborah Turrell Atkinson

In this the second mystery featuring attorney Storm Kayama , author Deborah Atkinson continues to give the reader a serious look into the "real" Hawaii. Rather than just setting her books in the islands, she has used the mystery format to place the most ordinary of everyday life into a historical and cultural context.

In The Green Room, Ms. Atkinson uses surfing competitions as the backdrop.

The son of Storm Kayama's new client is entered into the same high stakes surfing competition as Storm's cousin. While running the investigation for her client, Storm is able to reconnect with a part of her family that she has not seen in recent years. While the plot contains all of the twists and turns of a good mystery puzzle leaving the reader scrambling to figure out "who did it" before all is revealed, the true strength of the book is in the "extras."

When finished with The Green Room, readers will know a great deal about surfing, surfing competition, Hawaiian history, Hawaiian family traditions and much more Hawaiian folk lore-not all of it pleasant. One of the more interesting ancient folklore details involve gifts representing secret messages being sent to the various characters.

The Green Room is a solid follow up to the first Storm Kayama book Primitive Secrets. Hopefully there are many more in the series yet to come.

Oh, and what is the green room? There readers will know!
