Sea Storm: A Thriller (Underwater Investigation Unit Book 3) Kindle Edition
A Wall Street Journal bestselling series.
An explosive conspiracy sets the ocean roiling for a deep-diving investigator in a riveting thriller by the author of the Amazon Charts bestseller The Girl Beneath the Sea.
A distress call draws rescuers Sloan McPherson and the Underwater Investigation Unit to a cruise ship off the coast of Fort Lauderdale that’s sinking from a mysterious explosion. When it appears to be the work of an ecoterrorist and other ships are threatened, it becomes a race against time. More clues are discovered, and evidence is in danger of being washed away by a coming tropical storm. Sloan grows concerned that key details are being ignored, and a strange lack of urgency by authorities sets off alarms.
As the troubling questions compound, Sloan is determined to chase down every lead she has. Her persistence is getting her closer to the truth: that there’s something far more troubling at play than the official explanation. It’s also putting Sloan on a collision course with an enemy more powerful than she realizes, in a case so complex and deadly it may be impossible to prove. Now cracking the case is a matter of staying one step ahead of someone with every resource imaginable to bury Sloan and everything she knows.
“The fast-paced plot is filled to the brim with fascinating characters, and the locale is exceptional—both above and below the waterline. One doesn’t have to be a nautical adventure fan to enjoy this nail-biter.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Strong pacing, lean prose, and maritime knowledge converge in this crackerjack thriller.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Fans of the Underwater Investigation Unit [series] will enjoy this installment, and those who love thrillers will like this too.” —Library Journal

I'm already looking forward to the next release (even if it is next year 😭).
Really likable characters which make you want to be part of their team.
McPherson is so gung-ho, sometimes you're wincing but you know her nature tends to get the results.
What will the team get to up next?!
Very likeable characters that really suck you into the story. I found it hard to put down my kindle as I was desperate to know how each chapter would unfold. I found myself becoming Sloan McPherson, caught up in her world of diving, crime and corruption. Just brilliant!!
This time we have Sloan McPherson called to a cruise ship that is sinking off the coast of Florida. Explosions on board make it look like a terrorist attack but as Sloan digs deeper she finds herself embroiled in a corruption plot that goes to very dark and high places.
This one was a fun and entertaining read. Again we have Sloan doing things her way and going against protocol as she tries to discover the secrets of the attack on the cruise ship.
It starts off at a blistering pace and while it does move along quickly with plenty of twists and indeed action, I felt the book never reached the intensity of those first few chapters. The set up I felt promised more than it ultimately delivered. Towards the end the book kind of peters out rather than coming to a climax.
Having said that I did enjoy it overall. A little underwhelming but a fun read none the less.
Thanks to the publisher for the ARC through Netgalley.
