A high-stakes treasure hunt…A twisted trail of murder…A secret one woman may die to discover…

Number one New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen last electrified readers with Dead Aim and No One to Trust. Now she offers a new pulse-pounding thriller that takes suspense writing to an all-new level: deep below the surface, where a ruthless killer strikes without warning, without mercy…and with the deadliest intent.

Melis Nemid is treading in dangerous waters—and she’s about to be dragged under. As a marine researcher, Melis knows all too well the dangers that can lurk under even the calmest surfaces. But not even she can guess how deep the darkness runs. Only one oceanographer ever came close to discovering the deadly mystery that lies beneath the sea—and he seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. Now Melis is the last one who knows the truth. And someone is determined that the truth will die with her. For what Melis knows about the deep-sea mystery is only part of a nightmarish past torn by violence. She thought she had put that past behind her when she arrived at her Caribbean island home to research dolphin behavior.

But her peace—and her life—is about to be shattered by the arrival of a savage killer. Someone—for reasons unknown even to Melis—is cutting a path of destruction and death that leads directly to her. Only one man can save her—a man who claims to be a fellow oceanographer. He will seek to gain Melis’s trust, getting close to her secret and her life. But what this enigmatic man really wants, Melis may not discover until it’s too late. Because whoever is after her knows her nightmares intimately, and soon she will be forced to relive them all over again. Except for the final nightmare. The one she can’t possibly survive.

Listener Opinions

    " Melis Nemid is a marine biologist who has dolphins for friends. WOW! Of course I'm going to read it. I enjoyed this latest in romantic suspense from Ms. Johansen. Her contemporary romance books are pulling me in more than her historical romances. I enjoy when she brings different careers into focus. Since I'm an ocean fanatic, this was a good one for me. Great read for those interested in romantic suspense and loves all things marine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 2/20/2014

    " A wonderful mystery that has many different parts including a lost city under the ocean, child sex slaves, wealthy men and dolphins. Melis was abused as a child sex slave. She is in therapy and improving after being cared for by her care taker. Her care taker is killed. She is left all his money. Her therapist is killed. Someone is after Melis. This book has turns and unexpected twists. Very exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 8/4/2011

    " An engrossing mystery with all the necessary components -- exotic settings, warped characters, and a twisted plot. Geting to know Suzie and Pete, two wild dolphins who have accepted the main character, Melis, as their friend, is a delightful bonus. A quick, enjoyable read. "

    " good plot - nice twist! i could do without the holiday romance portion though. sometimes those get a bit too mushy... and well, i think it detracted a bit from the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 6/16/2010

    " Other than the title, the book is quite good. This time around, the author introduces dolphins into the mix. This is a great way to learn just a bit more about dolphins while enjoying tales of shipwrecks, explosions, and double crosses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 4/11/2010
