Michelle " Mitch" Mitchell is a thirtysomething single mom who's been making a living as a deep-sea diver in the Gulf of Mexico. When her father, Shan, dies, she heads to northern Michigan to settle his affairs. The official version has Shan drunk, driving into a ditch, and drowning in a couple feet of water. But something doesn't ring true to Mitch, so she does a little snooping around and discovers that her father was a dealer in contraband from wrecks discovered in Lake Huron. She also discovers that dear old Dad was involved in a scam that would have resulted in her losing custody of her teenage son. Soon Mitch realizes that nothing about her life and her family is what it seems to be. The dual plot lines--salvage smuggling and grandchild bartering--never converge as one might expect, but both are satisfyingly resolved. This is a well-plotted novel featuring a tough, self-contained protagonist forced to reappraise every notion she ever held about her past and future. Wes LukowskyFrom Publishers Weekly:
Allyn's latest mystery concerns a woman who returns home after the death of her father, only to discover that he was involved in shady dealings and to begin to suspect that his death was not accidental.
