'I felt the knife against my throat and thought I was going to die'.

Liz Palmer runs a dive business in the quiet tranquillity of a Caribbean island. Tranquil, that is, until a routine trip over the reef reveals the body of her newest employee—diver Jerry Sharpe. But when his brother, Jonas, shows up asking questions, Liz can't see how she can help. She barely knew Jerry. Then someone breaks into Liz's apartment, intent on her murder. Liz realises that she is already more involved in Jonas' quest to unravel Jerry's murky past than she wanted to be. And now Jonas and Liz will be drawn into a dangerous criminal underworld that could cost them both their lives...

My rating:

Another good NR oldie. Wonderful suspense with the drug-trafficking ring, great pacing, and wonderful hero. The heroine bugged me, though, which came as a huge surprise. And it’s because of her indecision, her insecurity, and her inability to face the truth about herself, that lowered the rating for this story. I could’ve done without all her “angst”.

Still, it was a pleasurable, quick, exciting, and intriguing read.
