WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award -- Best Thriller
When authorities fail to identify human remains discovered in and around Broome, Martin and Claire are despatched to the idyllic seaside resort to investigate. Little do they know their every move is watched, as they follow first one lead then another, until they are face to face with a ruthless enemy who is determined to end their lives.
"The author has created an intriguing mix of suspense and the supernatural in a breathtaking tale that left this reader wanting more. The vivid descriptions of Broome and its surrounds made me want to pack a bag and fly there—and I would have but for other constraints. Dialogue was exceedingly well used and served to drive the action. An excellent read." ~ PWindsInspirations

This book takes place in Northern Australia .... someplace I've always wanted to visit. The book is very descriptive and I can see in my mind's eye exactly what the author was going for. The dialogue is very clear, even with unique Australian colloquialisms. The story itself is well written and thought out. There were a few moments when reading that the descriptions seemed to have taken over the suspense, but since I actually enjoyed reading about the culture, history, etc., the overlong descriptions did not bother me. Not having read the first in the series, I was surprised by the arrival of a mysterious witch who possesses magical powers. I'm still not sure how I feel about witch Wanda. The back and forth between the two protagonists, Martin and Claire, are a little muddled. They seem to be quite intelligent, and even funny at times during their investigation of a killer, but the personal relationship didn't ring quite true for me. Maybe that's a male author trying to write a woman's point of view without having a woman guide him, somewhat. Not a bad book at all. I may check out the next in the series, to see if some of these things have been improved upon. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
