Really great story! A good and fast read. This is the first book of Iris Johansen that I've read and am looking forward to reading more. The subtext of the issue of contemporary slavery is treated with honesty and reality.

I LOVED THIS BOOK FOR THE DOLPHINS IN IT MAKES ME WANT ONE. THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN WITH THE MARINE LIFE IN IT WAS WONDERFUL. FOR THE DOLPHINS I DIDN'T THINK WOULD BE A MAIN CHARACTER THOUGH THEY TOOK JUST AS MUCH FOCUS FOR YOU WANTED TO CLIMB INTO THE STORY AND HELP SAVE THEM.

I usually love Iris Johansen's suspense books, but I couldn't get into this one. There seems to be alot of random characters and I wasn't sure how most of them related to each other. The hero and heroine seemed to be searching for something call "marinth". I gave up after 70 pages, so I'm not sure if that is a person, a place, or a who knows what.

I call books like these "snack foods". If you want a good suspenseful quick read, Johansen is one author who has mastered that art form. Easy to read, fast paced, characters you care about and characters you want to kill. Like eating snack foods, you're not really hungry but you feel like a part of you wants to be entertained; you have a couple of hours to kill and something to chomp on would be just the ticket. This delicious thriller is about a group of people searching for a lost city, Marinth, that only one man, Paul, has access to a map. He's murdered and his adopted daughter, Melis, inherits everything, including the map. But she has no interest in locating the lost city and its treasures. She'd much rather spend time studying and playing with her 2 dolphins, Pete and Susie. A very wealthy man, Kelby, locates Melis to get her to show him the map and join him in searching for the city. While she is reluctantly considering this, an evil crime lord, Archer, is also looking for the city. He knows a secret about Marinth that would make him far wealthier than all the jewelry and artifacts reported to be in Marinth. As Kelby gets closer to the location of Marinth, he and Melis fall in love (not without some tension of course), Archer docks his huge yacht a couple of miles from Kelby, and the dolphins find some new friends. At this point it's hard to put the book down. Will Archer sabotage Kelby's plans? Will he hurt the dolphins? Will Kelby and Melis stay in love? Will they get to Marinth before Archer? Will the dolphins return from their play with their newfound friends to help Kelby and Melis locate the lost city? A very good snack food that delivers what it promises.

Johansen offers a pulse-pounding thriller that takes suspense writing to an all-new level; deep below the surface, where a ruthless killer strikes without warning, without mercy..and with the deadliest intent.

Melis Nemid is treading in dangerous waters--and shes about to be dragged under. As a marine researcher, Melis knows all too well the dangers that can lurk under even the calmest surfaces. But not even she can guess how deep the darkness runs. Only one oceanographer ever came close to discovering the deadly mystery that lies beneath the sea--and he seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. Now Melis is the last one who knows the truth. And someone is determined that the truth will die with her. For what Melis knows about the deep-sea mystery is only part of a nightmarish past torn by violence. She thought she had put that past behind her when she arrived at her Caribbean island home to research dolphin behavior.

But her peace--and her life--is about to be shattered by the arrival of a savage killer. Someone--for reasons unknown even to Melis--is cutting a path of destruction and death that leads directly to her.Only one man can save her--a man who claims to be a fellow oceanographer. He will seek to gain Meliss trust, getting close to her secret and her life. But what this enigmatic man really wants, Melis may not discover until its too late. Because whoever is after her knows her nightmares intimately, and soon she will be forced to relive them all over again. Except for the final nightmare. The one she cant possibly survive.
