New York Times best-selling 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 duty - 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 island - 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 secrets - and a combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.

Elizabeth Lowell is one of those authors that I automatically buy whenever a new book is released. I wish I had listenend to a sample of this one because I was ready to abandon the book after the first minute or so. I did finally get through it but I will be sure not to buy another book narrated by this person. The story itself was not one of Ms. Lowell's best but it certainly would have been improved by good narration.
To read yes, but to listen to no. I have over 300 books in my library and I've never not finished an audiobook because of the person reading it, but this was awful.
Read yes, listen NO!!!
Don't know, couldn't get pass the voices.
Elizabeth Lowell is a fantastic story writer. I will read the book but I'm going to have to wait until I can get over the reader's voice before I read from scratch.
Didn't someone listen to this book before they allowed this person to read the entire thing.
ipod for audiobooks
I have just about given up on an author I used to enjoy. Elizabeth Lowell's last 2 books were barely entertaining. This one was made worse by a narrator who mumbled and ran sentences together. I want my credit back.
This was such a shallow, poorly written book I quit listening after three chapters. I am embarrassed I even bought it.
I have been reading Elizabeth Lowell books for years. Love her, and her stories. I have also listened to Justine Eyre and even though she doesn't make me want to stop listening, I just don't care for her voice. Or the timing. She seems to be whispering and then she is also kind of a monotone. I finished the book, but may have to reread it on my kindle to get the full scope of the story.
Story line is typical Elizabeth Lowell. I'm rarely disappointed by anything she writes. Some complained about the narration but I didn't find it that bad. It was not the best I've heard but it was also not the worst!
A much better reader. I better reader could have saved a so-so story.
Not as a 1st choice. I use to read everything she wrote, but lately not so.
Her voices were terrible, some you couldn't even understand.
I was very disappointed with the reader but the story wasn't up the the normally good Elizabeth Lowell either.
The story was OK, but far from Lowell's best. The narration is so bad it makes the book very difficult to listen to. She speaks in a whisper which is hard to understand and the volume difference among voices is annoying.
Difficult to hear and understand
