Iris Johansen invents another plucky heroine, Melis Nemid, in this high-stakes hunt for the legendary sunken island of Marinth. After a lifetime spent seeking refuge from the nightmares of her past, Melis has found comfort on a Caribbean island with two beloved dolphins and a staunch friend. But that haven is threatened when an oceanographer on the trail of Marinth's treasures is killed, leaving only Melis as his confidant. As a pack of vicious gold-diggers closes in on her, the only person who can help is Jed Kelby, a trust-fund playboy, ex-SEAL and fellow oceanographer. But even he could be after the sunken treasure, and he might be more dangerous than the deadly opportunists he's supposed to protect Melis from.
