Overview

Scuba diving off the Galápagos Islands, wildlife biologist and freelance writer Summer “Sam” Westin is not only out of her element—she’s plunged right into a dangerous conflict between fishermen and environmentalists…



When Sam is hired to cover a marine survey expedition to the Galápagos, she jumps at the opportunity—though she has to fudge the truth about her diving expertise. But amidst the giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and schooling hammerheads of Darwin’s enchanted islands, Sam gets caught up in deadly game of survival of the fittest, and her dream assignment turns into a nightmare.



When her diving partner’s air supply is contaminated with carbon monoxide on their very first dive, she wonders if someone is trying to sabotage the expedition. Sea cucumbers and shark fins are valuable commodities in the Asian market. How far will the poachers go? With no one watching their backs, Sam starts to suspect they may already be in over their heads—dealing with human predators more deadly than any shark…

    Another good read

    I have enjoyed reading this writer stories, however just a tad dissappointed with undercurrents. Seemed to drag a bit in the beginning to middle. I also thought Sam and Chase would be together more and spend more time getting to know and realize they are in love. I hope there is a next book and they end up married!

    Sam is so excited for her new assignment. She travels to the Gal

    Sam is so excited for her new assignment. She travels to the Galápagos Islands to assist and report on a marine survey. She had to take a class to get certified in scuba diving but she will be assisting an experienced diver so her inexperience is a small worry. But amidst the giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and schooling hammerheads of Darwin’s enchanted islands, Sam gets caught up in deadly game of survival of the fittest, and her dream assignment turns into a nightmare.




    On their first dive her partner’s air supply is contaminated and he almost dies. Was it an accident or is someone trying to sabotage their work. She has learned that sea cucumbers and shark fins are a precious commodity in Asian markets. Sam was worried about shark attacks but maybe the predator she is worried about most is human.




    Wilderness Westin takes us on an adventure will thrills, chills and spills and educates the reader too!!



    I love the way Pamela Beason tells a story. She puts the reader right there swimming above the reefs with amateur sleuth Summer “Sam” Westin. I tried snorkeling once several years ago when we were vacationing in Cancun and never got the hang of it. This story gave me the joys of being under the sea without getting wet! While reading it I felt like I was riding on Sam’s shoulder taking in the wonder and brilliance of the underwater world. Her descriptions of the creatures, the water, the games the sunlight played were just amazing.




    FBI Agent Chase was not on this trip with Sam and I didn’t really miss him, in fact I was kind of upset when his story line drew me away from Sam’s but I was so happy that they finally got back together.




    Beason always takes us to exciting places in this series, tracking a cougar or a bear or sea creatures, her books are great escape and I have enjoyed them all very much. I am anxiously awaiting my next adventure with Sam Westin.
