"Kait Carson's Florida is dead on in this action-packed mystery! The enviable setting, compelling characters, and the author's expertise on diving make for a fresh plot and an intriguing story masterfully woven into a satisfying conclusion." - Krista Davis, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Domestic Diva Mysteries (on Death by Blue Water)
When Hayden Kent's mentor and friend discovers her son Mike's dead body, dressed in full scuba attire, washed up on Pigeon Key, she needs Hayden. Her paralegal and dive skills may help unravel the tragedy of Mike's last days. He'd recently discovered a sunken Spanish galleon and rumors that he hit the mother lode ran through the Keys like wildfire.
Hayden's dive on the treasure site uncovers gold, and clues that Mike's death was something far more sinister than an accident. When two different wills, both signed the day Mike died, are delivered to the courthouse, the suspect list grows, as do the threats against her. The danger escalates as she tries to save herself, discover the motive, and find the killer.
