Editorial Reviews


Winner of 2017 Readers' Favorite GOLD Medal!
Award Winning Author

A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a suspense story that is as exciting as a James Rollins novel. Kendall travels between Maryland, the jungles of the Yucatan and the waters of Mexico to decipher and fulfill her husband's wishes. Despite the animosity and heartache her stepson gives her, she valiantly forges ahead to finish what her husband has charged her to do. The characters were outstanding, including the villains. I found them easy to relate to. The plot is interesting and the storyline is fascinating. This is a captivating and engrossing story and I loved every bit of it. Reading this story was a pure pleasure. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good suspense novel with some ancient legends mixed in.-

Dive into A Deep Thing
A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a high concept thriller--think The Da Vinci Code of the deep--that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. A roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, mystery and intrigue,  this page-turner surprises at every turn and offers a stunning ending you'll never suspect.  I never heard of cenotes--magical underground caves in the Yucatan Peninsula so it was fascinating to learn about diving in these beautiful sinkholes. This book really packs a punch. It has everything from conspiracy theories to corporate greed and smart writing that doesn't disappoint.
--Marilyn Baron, Author of Stumble Stones: A Novel

Think an Indiana Jones-type thriller with the nonstop staccato beat of jungles, dangerous dives, and a treasure hunt like no other. Think of a series of surprises set in the Yucatan jungle that continually test the characters and surprise the reader. Then wrap this adventure in the cloak of a mother's struggles with grief and a conspiracy that reaches out to replace her husband's memory with something beyond anything she's ever known.

A. K. Smith's prose embraces a combination of fast-paced action and psychological revelations, giving it a juicy blend of tension and insight that makes for a well-done story.
