Making her way up onto her deck, she is horrified to see that the Caribbe, home of her best friend, Elyse Henry is fully engulfed in flames. Disregarding her own safety, Hannah is in the midst of a desperate attempt to save Elyse when a second explosion spreads burning fuel over the water’s surface. She manages to drag Elyse out of the water, and rushes her to the local hospital. Elyse has sustained severe head injuries- the doctors can’t tell Hannah if her friend will recover.Back at the bay, Hannah does what she does best. She begins to treat the area as a crime scene. The next morning, her dive partner arrives, followed closely by a couple of men from the police department. Hannah begins by investigating the remains of the Caribbe, now resting on the bottom of the bay. On the face of it, the explosions look like an accident caused by a leaky gas stove that ignited the propane. However, the dock owner just serviced the entire boat and swears that there was nothing wrong with the stove. Elyse was the only local employee of the London-based Society of Ocean Conservation. She never backs away from a confrontation when it comes to protecting the natural beauty around her. But would someone make an attempt on her life over something like that? With Elyse still lying unconscious and helpless in the hospital, Hannah first has to convince the Chief of Police that this was a crime- then apprehend the would-be killer.
