Sex and adventure meet history and intrigue in this breathless nautical thriller that spans decades to imagine a fascinating answer to the real-life mystery of the vanished French sub, Surcouf.

When Maggie Riley sets sail for the Caribbean, all she wants is a little R&R before starting a work assignment in Dominica.

The last thing Maggie expects is to rescue Cole Thatcher, a sexy—but possibly nuts—conspiracy-spouting archaeologist found swimming nude off the island of Guadeloupe. It turns out Cole is searching for the wreckage of a vanished World War II submarine, claiming it holds millions in gold coins and classified documents from a powerful inner circle of the secret society Skull and Bones.

Maggie has enough skeletons to deal with. But when she learns her own past may intersect this inner circle of Bonesmen, she realizes Cole might not be so crazy after all—and joining him in the search for the sub may be her only course to uncover a hidden truth. Download and start listening now!

    " Though I normally love books like this, I was a little bored. It was a decent story and I like the characters, but I could never really get into it so it took me a long time to finish. "

    " This really could have been an incredible book. Instead it was pretty damn cheesy, predictable, and utterly disappointing with how the villain was handled in the end. Worst conclusion ever. If you're a sailor or enjoy boating, are a fan of archaeology but you're not a PhD, and you're looking for an easy read that finally gets interesting 70% of the way through, then this is your book. I've read worse, and it wasn't totally awful, but I don't recommend spending money on this book. For a Caribbean "Thriller", it does not live up to its title. "

    " Very slow start but turned into an ok book. The author could have shortened it by about 200 pages. Skimmed a lot! "

    " I found this book difficult at first, so used the Seychelle series. Definitely one for the 'conspiracy theory' lovers and I soon began to enjoy it. The 'baddies' in this story are certainly the most colourful of the characters, even they'd make a good series based on their ineptitude. The secret society, almost an evil 'masonic' cult seemed to be, in some ways, surplus to requirements but the link with war-time activity is a brilliant stroke and gave a sense of reality to it. "

    " Good thriller with a backstory of a search for a French sub that sank in the Caribbean during WW2. The good guys and bad guys race to find a hidden secret that went down with the sub. This book has several stories going on at once, my favorite was the backstory of the crew of the submarine and what led to her going down. I liked the big twist in the middle, however the ending was purposely left open-ended. A worthy thriller, better than most. "

    " This is the first book I won from Good Reads and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the book and the writing. Christine Kling creates a world of intrigue and mystery set in exotic locales. Her own experience of living on the high seas translates into a tale wrapped around adventures on the water. Similar to Dan Brown's tales of the Illuminati, Kling introduces the reader to a secret organization wielding the country's real power. If you enjoy a good mystery, high-sea adventures, and a bit of romance thrown in then you will definitely want to read this novel. I look forward to reading more from Ms Kling. Thank you Good Reads for introducing me to Christine Kling and her wonderful writing style. "

    " Great story, not so great ending. "

    " Good premise dragged down by leaden pacing and outlandish characters. "

    " I really liked this book. Action, history and mystery what was even better is it was a free Kindle book! "

    " it was fun to read. a good adventure with treasure hunting to boot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/13/2013

    " I love a book that mixes stories in the past (in this case, WWII) and the present. Toss in a secret society and plenty of suspense and I was there to the end even though the female protagonist made a choice I thought she had enough information to steer clear of. "

    " Great book, couldn't put it down. Although the story is fiction, it really makes you wonder how much we are manipulated by those with power. "

    " Really enjoyed this stand-alone thriller from Christine Kling. Her writing is, as always, top notch and the descriptive sailing information was very enjoyable. "
