Paralegal Hayden Kent knows first-hand that life in the Florida Keys can change from perfect to perilous in a heartbeat. When she discovers a man’s body at 120’ beneath the sea, she thinks she is witness to a tragic accident. She becomes the prime suspect when the victim is revealed to be the brother of the man who recently jilted her, and she has no alibi. A migraine stole Hayden’s memory of the night of the death.
As the evidence mounts, she joins forces with Officer Janice Kirby. Together the two women follow the clues that uncover criminal activities at the highest levels and put Hayden’s life in jeopardy while she fights to stay free.

“The highlights of this debut novel are the beautiful descriptions of the underwater dives as well the complicated details involved that protect the divers’ safety. The author achieves in making the appeal and beauty of recreational diving worth risking the many dangers surrounding it, strengthening the heroine’s character and making her a protagonist the reader will want to succeed.” – Kings River Life Magazine

I enjoyed the characters, plot and setting. It was also fascinating to learn more about deep-sea diving – it sounds like an exhilarating experience!
The mystery kept me guessing about who did what. I liked the characters, found them interesting, not dull like some characters in books I've read.
Kait is a good writer and I would suggest her books to others.
