Born into a humble life in the Bahamas, Madeleine Nesbitt, a naive-sheltered young woman, crashes back to brutal reality when her parents are murdered on their fishing boat in the Bahamian Out Islands. Trust into a world of international intrigue after assuming a new identity, Madeleine vows to find answers—before the killer returns for the next of kin. But, the one thing she wants most is retribution, and for that, she’s willing to take any risk.
RICO SALAZAR CHECKED HIS WATCH, then scanned the horizon. Nothing. Quarter to ten and still not even a glimpse of the long-awaited powerboat. His crew had to arrive soon. They should have called an hour ago. Discretion had always been crucial, now even more so, especially if they were followed.
With only the warmth of the sun and the whispering sea for company, he scrutinized the quiet lagoon and the mile-long stretch of beach. He didn’t see a single soul. Only he and several crabs moved in the stillness.
Standing on a knoll, flanked by palm trees, Rico gazed at Exuma Bank’s clear waters. The squeal of an osprey, plunge-diving feet first into the surf, startled him. He marveled at the raptor’s fluid motion, as it skewered a bluefish then flapped its wings and resumed flight, soaring over him. Rico squinted at the fish that dangled midair, face forward, still squirming.
An instant later, a single drop—the bright color of blood—dripped from the sky. He told himself the splatter on his shirt was a bad omen and Rico remembered his crew hadn’t called. He glanced down at the blood. Maybe, they couldn’t.

Suspense And Thrills
This is a novel that is full of suspense and thrills...I could never fully explain this storyline in a short review. It is deep and rich, flowing with many characters that all piece together like a fine jig saw puzzle bringing forth a story that reels with adventure and intrigue.
I feel this story actually touches upon the motives and hearts of so many that dapple in the dark world of corruption. It is one of evil, and those who are determined to fight it, even at the risk of losing their own lives. It is one of love, and one of hate, greed versus common good for man, the problem, which one will win. A real thriller, one that wraps around you and keeps you tied to the pages until the final curtain. Excellent writing, recommended.
