From the Publisher:

"Haunting... page-turning... [Hall ] delivers the eerie sexuality, matter-of-fact absurdity, bizarre characters and convoluted plot that have become his signatures" -- The Miami Herald.

Beneath the still blue waters off Key Largo a woman dives into a dazzling array of color. But behind the shimmering schools of fish, somewhere in the shadows of the reef, a death trap awaits. In minutes one life will be expertly, brutally taken, and another plunged into a mean season of fury, obsession, and revenge ... His name is Thorn, his world is mangrove islands, open waters, and the ghosts of a too-violent past. Darcy Richards was everything to him. Now, finding her killer is. Wading into a seething mystery, Thorn is catapulted into a nightmare of violence and deception. There lurks a sensual young woman with a hard come-on, an aging former mobster, and a diabolical ex-CIA man. What they all have in common is each other's mad ruthlessness -- and a little red fish that will make some people very rich, and others very dead...

"An engrossing, spellbinding, and a truly different work; a thriller with the real thrills!" -- Nelson Demille.

"A pounding action thriller!" -- The New York Times Book Review.

"Rich atmosphere, wild in action and peppered with colorful characters, hall nails you to each page until the suspense-laden climax." -- Clive Cussler.
