Coast Guard investigators Rissi Dawson and Mason Rogers are tasked with finding out why an oil-rig worker died on the drilling platform off the coast of North Carolina. However, their job is complicated by opinions from environmental activists and those who believe the death is secondary to an ancient curse. But the most frightening theory of all is that the death may not be from an accident, but from a murder.
And the action continues with the second installment in this exciting suspense series from Dani Pettrey! This book picks up right where the last one left off, so I do recommend that you read the series in order, but this series has been great, so that should be no trial! I liked Rissi and Mason a lot in the first book and was excited that they took center stage in this second novel. They share similar painful pasts, which makes their relationship that much better. I love how the characters are flawed and real. Like the first book, the story starts with multiple characters, which takes a few chapters to keep straight, but this eventually allows there to be multiple potential villains and the plot less predictable. I suggest that you make sure your laundry is done and your house is clean before starting this book, because once you start, you will not be able to put it down! I enjoyed the suspenseful plot. I definitely recommend this series!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
