Kirkus selected this book as one of the best books of the year. A sunken boat with bullet holes in the bulkhead is intriguing. A skeleton on the beach of an uninhabited island, shocking! Being pursued by the police and a hit man who rapes as well as murders!! Can things get any worse for a couple on vacation? They can, and they do. Vicky Carter and Bill Tunnell met while vacationing in the Caribbean, and she invited him to her yacht. There they enjoy three of the Caribbean's special delights: sailing, srkeling and romance. Then while exploring a reef on the south side of a small, uninhabited island they make a discovery far more dangerous than bullet holes or skeletons, one that could hound them for the rest of their lives. Can they survive? They can, and they do.
