Overview

Twin brothers Denny and Steven Anderson love helping people and fighting crime alongside their sheriff dad on sun-drenched Fisher Key, Florida. Steven likes chasing girls. Denny longs to lose his virginity, but doesn’t dare tell anyone he’s gay. Steven has a secret of his own. He lied to everyone, including his own brother, about being accepted into SEAL training for the U.S. Navy.

On the day they graduate high school, the twins meet the handsome new guy in town, a military veteran with a chiseled body and mysterious past. Meanwhile Brian Vandermark, a gay transfer student from Boston, finds himself falling for closeted Denny but hampered by his shyness. When an antique yacht explodes in Fisher Key harbor, all three boys are caught up in a summer of betrayal, romance, and danger. It’s the Mystery of the Tempest-—and it just might kill them all.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Set on Florida's Fisher Key, this genial mystery finds 18-year-old twin amateur sleuths investigating the explosion of a yacht. Denny is gay; Steven is straight. Denny is headed for the Coast Guard, Steven for the Navy SEALs. Steven is a womanizer; Denny is waiting until he graduates from Coast Guard Academy to come out and act on his desires for men. (In the world of the novel, Don't Ask, Don't Tell is apparently still operational.) Despite their differences, the brothers have a warm, funny and occasionally mildly antagonistic rapport as well as a successful working relationship--they make reference to having cracked previous cases together, though none of their earlier adventures seems to have been published. As Denny builds a friendship, and maybe more, with an openly gay transfer student, Steven sleeps with the school's valedictorian, who irks him by criticizing his technique. Each boy's personal story arc takes place amidst intrigue that will delight genre enthusiasts: explosions, competing investigations, false identities, stolen diamonds and a harrowing climax. Subplots are deftly woven into the story and tied up, though readers never do learn whether they are supposed to understand valedictorian Kelsey's sexual requests as anything besides nagging. A true mystery with something to offer teens of any orientation. (Mystery. 14-18)

    Denny Anderson was joining the coast guard after graduation. Denny was also gay and hiding it.
    Steven Anderson was Denny twin. He told everyone he joined the Navy and was going to be a seal. Steven lied he did not pass the physcal for seals because he was color blind.
    Denny and Steven have solved mysteries since they were 12. Their father sheriff. After graduation party Steven went to Kelsey father boat to be alone. Denny gave a ride in his boat to Brian because he got left by his boyfriend without a car. Going by water to were the party they saw a boat on fire so Denny was swimming over their to see if anyone needed help when it blew up knocked him under. Threw Brian out of the boat. He was going under but a swimmer in the water rescued him and helped him and got Denny in the boat as well and got him breathing. Turns out Carter used to be a seal and said he was training for a triathalon.
    The twins want to find out who blew up the boat and what was happening around them. What were they going to do about their secrets?
    Their is a lot of action and the twins make mistakes but they also do some good things.
    I would not mind reading another book about them. I was given this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for honest review.
