It is 1898. Bound for Chicago, the freighter Jerry McGuen goes down in Lake Michigan, taking with it every man aboard. But what other fate could befall a vessel carrying the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer?
Now: A veteran diver and “ghost ship” expert is exploring the legendary wreck for a documentary. He dies inexplicably inside the freighter’s main saloon. Then another diver is killed, and panicked rumors rise like bubbles from the lake: ancient demons have awakened below!
The expedition’s beleaguered financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to save the film - and perhaps some innocent lives. Along with media forensics guru Will Chan, Kat plumbs the depths of an evil that may date back to the time of the Pharaohs. But some secrets are best drowned in the seas of the past....

I struggled to listen to this whole book due to the terrible narrator! The voice for the hero was just awful. He sounded like he had a bad accent that reminded me of an old movie Asian bad guy! I usually enjoy Heather Graham's stories but this one just seem to plod along with an obvious and silly ending. Not only that, but she used the main characters to explain what had happened in lengthy detail where if you paid attention to the story at all was self explanatory. Save your money & look for a better story.
It wasn't my favorite but it still keep me wanting to read more. The idea of diving in the cold water of Lake Michigan just wasn't appealing. The Egyptian storyline kept me interested. And of course I had to love the cat.
Cat was my favorite. She was so respectful of the dead & willing to listen to them made me want to meet her. She was strong when she needed to be & soft when it counted.
The first medical examiner in Chicago reminded me of Kermit the Frog with the voice. All the other characters were great.
Can't say that it did.
The book was enjoyable. I think where the setting was could be why it wasn't a favorite, but that's also a personal preference. I've already started on my next in the series.
The narrator was brilliant but the story a bit long. It was interesting. The characterization was amazing.
You will either love or hate the narrator. Unfortunately I could not listen to the story because of him.
I really liked this one. Heather Graham has a nice formula in her Krewe books. I really like that it brings members of the first Krewe together with the second Krewe. If you like the pervious Krewe books, I would recommend this one. Luke Daniels is awesome! I love that you can hear the difference between characters which is no easy feat when you think of the number of characters in this book.
Not really. I was on a plane and I needed a distraction. The story just didn't pull me in like some stories do. I stop and started it a couple of times because I dosed off because I was on a long flight.
No I wouldn't. The reason is it took way to long to spark a person interest. I will give it this thought I though because of the summary it was going to be a great story. I found this wasn't the case.
Maybe with the proper editing it could be interesting enough.
