Dangerous Depths by Kathy Brandt

Trying to save an endangered species doesn’t normally target one for extinction. But homicide detective Hannah Sampson has her doubts when Elyse—her close friend and neighbor—dies from a fiery boat explosion. The local police believe she committed suicide. But Hannah knows that Elyse—a staunch environmentalist—was too dedicated to preserving life to take her own. But if Hannah is going to hook her friend’s killer, she’s going to have to chart her own course—and make sure that her deep sea forensics don’t get her in way over her head…


"Fast-paced thriller…that explodes onto the opening page. By the end of the first chapter, Brandt’s heroine is breathless and the reader is hooked."
--Diver Magazine

“A plunge into intrigue. Brandt is in her element as underwater sleuth.”
--The Denver Post

“White-hot writing, a charismatic heroine and crackling tension flawlessly merge in Brandt’s latest Underwater Investigation. Plus, her crisp depiction of the British Virgin Islands lends lush atmosphere to this suspenseful story. Police diver Hannah Sampson is smart, skillful and independent. But her independence makes things difficult when her best friend is seriously injured in a boat fire. Hannah’s the only person on the island who believes the fire was a murder attempt. Clues lead to dead ends, but
Hannah knows she’s onto something. Threats against her own life reinforce her gut instinct and push her toward a risky resolution.This richly plotted mystery is as satisfying as finding buried treasure.”
—Romantic Times Magazine

“Beginning in Swimming With the Dead, and then Dark Water Dive, Brandt introduced Hannah Sampson, an independent and spunky heroine who, not coincidentally, hails from Colorado. Her special talents, aside from a quick, sometimes raw wit and a bulldog-like curiosity,include diving. While the storylines in Brandt’s books are compelling and the plots, filled with murder, pending murder, and intrigue, keep the pages turning, it’s really her special gift for atmosphere that has kept me reading. Her latest book, Dangerous Depths, is no exception. I will say that Brandt continues to grow as a writer and her heroine, Hannah Sampson, emerges as a more fully developed and complex character. And, as much as I like Sampson, I enjoy the descriptions of the British Virgin Islands even more, particularly the detailed evocations of diving that can almost make you taste the regulator in your mouth.”
—Springs Magazine

Police underwater diver and homicide investigator Hannah Sampson went down to the British Virgin Island as a favor to her boss who wanted someone on his team nearby during the inquiries into the death of his son there. Hannah loved it so much that she quit her job in Denver and went to work as a detective in BVI in Tortuga. After a year of living there she has a lover, good friends and a houseboat where she can look out at the sea every day................... One day she is awakened by an explosion and sees the Caribbe on fire and sinking into the water. She dives and brings up her friend Elyse Henry who lapses into a coma. Evidence points to the incident being an accident because she left her propane stove on, which apparently sparked and caught fire. Hannah¿s instinct tells her somebody was trying to murder her friend. In defiance of her boss¿ orders to leave the case alone, the determined Hannah tries to prove her instincts are correct, but almost gets killed in the process.................. DANGEROUS DEPTHS is an exciting police procedural set in an exotic setting. What makes the attempt on Elyse¿s life interesting is that she didn¿t have an enemy with a motive to murder her; so readers keep wondering why as they seek along aside the heroine to find out who the killer is. Armchair travelers beware! Once you read this book, you¿ll want to hop at plane and visit the unspoiled British Virgin Islands........................... Harriet Klausner

The books in this series are all the same...in a good way. If you need to quickly get lost in a mystery and you'd like a fast read, these are great. Caribbean setting, good characters, and diving, what's not to like? If you're looking for deep meaning or intellectual stimulation, tho, move on.
