Recovering from a gunshot wound he’d received while in the line of duty, NYPD Detective Mick O’Shaughnessy is in need of some relaxing time away from the big city. A vacation in the peaceful, scenic Bikini Atoll, a scuba diver’s paradise, could be the panacea to heal his wounded leg as well as his shattered nerves. Then again, maybe it isn’t. The Majestic Resort Hotel, unfortunately, does not turn out to be the bastion of tranquility Mick had hoped to enjoy. Immediately upon arrival, Mick inadvertently finds himself dropped in the middle of an international money laundering operation, a territorial feud between the island natives and the resort developers, and an impending mob war between the Russian Mafia and the Japanese Yakuza. If that weren’t nerve-wracking enough, the many years of nuclear testing that had taken place in Bikini Atoll after World War II have had an unusual effect on the sea life in the lagoon—and the freakishly large mutant barracuda who dwells there perceives all scuba-diving tourists as lunch meat.

Most people need a vacation to recover from their vacation but NYPD detective Mike O'Shaunghnessy takes things to the extreme! After being shot in the line of duty, Mike is ordered on vacation by the attractive precinct psychologist. The psychologist has an equally attractive sister in the travel industry who arranges for him to visit a posh new hotel on Bikini Island. Mike looks forward to a week of relaxation and SCUBA diving.

Even before Mike reaches his destination, he finds out that all is not well in paradise. There is money laundering happening and he is asked to keep his eyes open. Unfortunately, Mike's confidence still isn't back to 100%. Forewarned is forearmed and Mike watches closely as he settles into his luxurious accommodations.

The action picks up quickly for Mike as people come up missing, strange deaths happen in the water and the obvious tensions between the Japanese and Russian staff. Mike must be at his best if he is going to survive.

I enjoyed the realistic descriptions of SCUBA diving procedures and the concept of a mutant killer fish is absolutely horrifying! Author Mike Monahan has created an enjoyable ride for any reader who like a good mystery.
