Cliffs of Laguna Beach

When Criminology Professor Marin Ryan docks her new boat in the Blue Water Marina, she catches sight of cyber-security guru John Hunter on his yacht in the next slip over. It had been a long time since she had last seen her college lover, but feelings rekindled at that moment.

The Blue Water Marina proves to be a haven for other interesting characters, brought together by their mutual love of the sea and the boaters' lifestyle. Like old friends, they seem to make themselves at home with the reader, they snuggle up on the couch and move in for the evening. A few slips down is the lovable movie star Raphael Montoya with his old fishing boat that reminds him of his humbler beginnings. A young plastic surgeon, Mitch Taylor docked across from Marin, has a secret life of his own and disappears regularly. And, let's not forget Bailey, the beagle.

The next morning, Marin finds the body of a woman in the water and discovers that the psychologist was a beloved member of E-Dock. Homicide Investigator Cameron West is assigned the case with her powerhouse team. Marin, the former FBI agent, and John, the computer expert, are drawn into the case.

The victim had a covert life of a psychological profiler. The revelation leads the investigation that is fraught with turns and twists along the way until John's computer hacking uncovers the thread that breaks the case open in an entirely different direction––one that puts Marin, John, and Cameron in peril––they know too much.
