New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell plunges
into the adventurous and deadly world of underwater treasure
hunters in a heart-stopping tale that superbly combines
atmosphere, action, romance, and suspense.
After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean
behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has
left her family's diving and marine recovery business
drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come
back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate's
financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise
started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no
to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the
beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.
Holden Cameron was addicted to the adrenaline rush of active
dutyâ€”including narrowly surviving an underwater explosives
accident. The last thing the former British military diver
wants is to babysit a family of thieves on a tropical
islandâ€”even if they are the world-famous Diving Donnellys.
But in his new civilian job, Holden must investigate the
suspicious activity surrounding a Donnelly dive to recover
treasure from the ancient wreck of a pirate ship.
When equipment, treasure, and even divers begin to
disappear, Kate and Holden form an uneasy alliance to
uncover the truth. But the deeper they plummet into the
mystery, the closer they come to each other. Soon they are
sharing their deepest fears and darkest secretsâ€”and a
combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.
