Imagine waking up to find that your neighbor and dear friend's home
is burning and you can't find your friend until it's almost too late.
This is what happens to homicide detective Hannah Sampson. She awakens
to find her neighbor Elyse Henry's houseboat on fire. Elyse is an
activist dedicated to saving endangered species. Even though the explosion
and fire are ruled accidental, Hannah is not convinced and is determined
to help her friend. While her friend lies in a coma at the hospital,
Hannah is taken on a journey that involves killers, turtles, friends
and enemies. Will she be able to find the person who caused the houseboat
explosion in time?
Brandt does a great job in capturing the reader's attention within
the first few pages and keeps the reader's attention throughout
Dangerous Depths. The mystery of the explosion is captivating
and has the reader question if it was an accident until proven otherwise.
The information about the deep sea diving and the turtles' migration
patterns shows the amount of research and utilization of personal
knowledge that Ms. Brandt uses to create a fantastic mystery for
her old and new fans.
