An explosion rips through New York City's Grand Central Station one morning, destroying the train Karen Friedman's husband, a successful hedge-fund manager, is riding in to work.

Publisher's Summary

An explosion rips through New York City's Grand Central Station one morning, destroying the train Karen Friedman's husband, a successful hedge-fund manager, is riding in to work. Days later, with many bodies still unidentifiable, Karen resigns herself to the awful truth: her husband of 18 years is dead.

On that same day, a suspicious hit-and-run accident leaves a young man dead in Karen's hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut. Ty Hauck, a detective, becomes emotionally caught up in the case and finds a clue that shockingly connects the two seemingly unrelated events.

Months later, two men show up at Karen's home digging into Charles's business dealings. Hundreds of millions of dollars are missing - and the trail points squarely to Charles. With doubt suddenly cast on everything she has ever known, Karen, with Hauck, steps into a widening storm of hedge-fund losses, international scams, and murder. And as the investigations converge, these two strangers touched by tragedy are pulled into a deepening relationship and unwittingly open the door to a twisted - and deadly - conspiracy.

With its breakneck pacing, plentiful twists, compelling characters, and abundant heart, The Dark Tide confirms Andrew Gross' place as a master storyteller at the top of his game.

    "Reads like a movie"

    Enjoyable throughout, very visual in the way the story was told, keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout Some parts were predictable, and the ending left it open for future development.

    "Enjoyable suspense noval"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narration was great, not flat like some. The story is complex yet easy to follow. The characters really come to life. I love suspense, and get a little disappointed when I can forsee an event coming as I did several times in this story. But I still found it very enjoyable and will read others by this author in the future.

    "Riveting and Realistic!"

    Hats off to Andrew Gross who writes an even more exciting book than his first solo story, "The Blue Zone." The characters in "The Dark Tide" are very convincing in this believable page-turner. Gross kept me entertained and in suspense until the very last page!

    "Good idea - poorly written"

    I thought the plot of this book was great - it combined romance and intrigue and could have been developed into a great story. Unfortunately, the writing was shallow and amateurish. The dialogue was annoying. If you eliminated every unecessary time someone's name was spoken, the book could have been a chapter shorter. Additionally, we knew Karen wanted to know "why" Charlie did what he did after the 2nd or 3rd time she asked, The next 20 to 30 times she asked could have saved another chapter. While I might not look for another work from this author, I have to say that in spite of being annoyed by the writing style, the book kept me reasonably entertained.
