The author of Jumper returns with a near-future SF novel, set in an America whose coastline has been drowned by melting Antarctic ice.
In the world where hundreds of millions of people have been displaced from their homes by the Deluge--a hundred-foot-rise in sea level from melting ice caps--Partricia Beenan is lucky. She is still an American citizen with the right to live on the continent, unlike so many "wetfoots" whose homes lie deep under the waves or the refugees from nations now completely under water.
But Patricia's father chose to live on a floating city of New Galveston, instead of following his congresswomen wife to Washington, and go into the underwater salvage business. Now, several years after his death, it's Patricia's business and her city. She's a wealthy woman, on the city council, well known to local INS commander and the New Galveston police.
But none of that will help Patricia when she stumbles across a recently sunken freighter that has dozens of bodies chained up in its hold and clear evidence that it has been fired upon by an INS ship.
Patricia's evidence of a rogue operation within the INS brings her together with Thomas Beckett, a government investigator assigned to the case. Romance blossoms while they pursue and are pursued by the killers, into the heart of the conspiracy.

Blind Waves is loaded with edge of the seat, nail biting action, with believable tech and premises (mostly,) but Gene Roddenberry said great drama is, and always will be, about characters. This book is populated by full complex 3D characters. Good good guys and Bad bad guys,and medium Medium guys, who act for reasons that are reasonable, to them. It may be not unpredictable that the boy meats girl, they fall for each other, but it's well done. This is one I've read over and over.
Some of my favorite Sci Fi fun reads are by this author - but this book was something of a bore. I ended up quick scanning much of it. BUT - do try his books shown in the recommended section here -they are great.
