Publisher's Summary

When one Coast Guard officer is found dead and another goes missing, Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Finn Walker faces his most dangerous crime yet. His only clues are what little evidence remains aboard the dead officer's boat, and the direction the clues point to will test Finn and the Guard to their limits.

When investigative reporter - and Finn's boss's sister - Gabby Rowley arrives, her unrelenting questions complicate an already volatile situation. Now that she's back, the tug on Finn's heart is strong, but with the risks she's taking for her next big story, he fears she might not live through it.

Thrown together by the heinous crime, Finn and Gabby can't ignore the sparks or judgments flying between them. But will they be able to see past their preconceptions long enough to track down an elusive killer, or will they become his next mark?

Horrible narration.

Narrator reads every line like a weak, helpless victim. please learn how to not ruin books with your poor choices of tone and inflection.

Slow at first and difficult to follow

I normally enjoy Dani Pettrey’s books, this one was just a bit slower than her other books. And I would frequently get lost when the scene changed. There is also a lot of past reflections and it wasn’t always easy to follow that either. I think I’d enjoy this book more in the written form!
I’m not sure if I will listen to book two when it comes out. But I do know that I’ll be sending this one back for credit!

Not my favorite by this author.

The story was definitely full of action, but the main character annoyed me. The males also seem unrealistic. The narrator was not very good. Her male voices all sounded the same—like an old man.

Great story, not so great reader.

Disappointed in the reader’s lack of pauses between “scenes” and not enough variety in vocal differences to tell who was who. A great story as Pettrey always writes that was difficult to listen to.

Too boring to get through chapter one

I was excited about this book because I enjoy mysteries and the Coast Guard and anything having to do with Murder at sea. However, I couldn't listen past the first chapter. There was no interesting hooks - nothing to grab my attention and get me interested or caring abut the characters. Very disappointing to have spent a credit on this book.

Disappointed

I have loved Dani’s stories! She is a great writer. I’m not sure if it’s just the narrator or also the story. The narrator’s voice was so annoying, particularly when speaking for the male characters. It kept me from being able to enjoy the story.

Captivating Story

This book is so good. Many times I had to remind myself to breathe. When it ended I was sad. Can't hardly wait to read the next book.

Awesome Book!!!

What a thrill ride of a start to a new series. Couldn’t stop listening because the action just kept coming. Loved the first installment and I’m looking forward to the next in the series. My only disappointment was that Therese Plummer wasn’t the narrator for this series, like she was in the previous Chesapeake Valor series. Don’t get me wrong, Nina Alvamar did a fine job, but no one brings a story to life like Therese...just my opinion.
