When a oil rig death appears to be more than accident, Coast Guard Investigator Rissi Dawson and newcomer to the team, Mason Rogers are put on the case.
The team is back in this thrilling companion to The Killing Tide, while it's not necessary to read the previous book, and this book could stand well on it's own, I felt that there was a lot more reader payoff for me coming into this book already familiar with much of the team. Rissi grew up in the foster care system, a survivor of abuse, with a passion for bringing criminals to justice, using her gifts of observation to draw out details that help her team. She's always looked up to Mason, and saw him as a hero with a heart for others.
Mason is a man of action, naturally protective and daring, he courageous fights to keep people safe, a job transfer brings him face to face with Rissi, after years apart.
I loved the camaraderie of the whole team, as they work together and tease each other, and challenging each other to bring their best to the table. I also liked getting to know Noah, Caleb, Emmy, Brooke, and Logan better. There are some great supporting storylines, that add to the suspense and drama. I liked how this book had a driving plot, thrilling yet not as violent in nature as the previous book in this series, which I actually enjoyed more.
Overall, this was a engaging and immersive read that had me hanging on, not wanting to put it down. This book is a very entertaining and captivating read, I loved that I enjoyed the character and relationship building, as well as supporting storylines, just as much as the action packed scenes, and it made the book so much more enjoyable and balanced as a whole. Highly recommend this fantastic read, and I can't wait to see what is next for this amazing team!
