The Crushing Depths by Dani Pettrey



They know the power and peril of the ocean.
But as they get closer to the deadly truth . . .
An even greater danger lurks just beneath the surface.

When an accident claims the life of an oil-rig worker, Coast Guard Investigators Rissi Dawson and Mason Rogers are flown to the scene thirty-eight miles from shore. Tensions aboard the rig are high, and the death has everyone on edge. Environmental activists are threatening to do whatever it takes to stop the "plague on the environment" from continuing its work. Meanwhile, rumors are circulating on board about an ancient curse lurking in the depths below.

Mounting evidence shows the death might not have been an accident. Was the man killed by one of the activists or, more frighteningly, a member of his own crew? Rissi and Mason have to sort through not only numerous suspects, but also their own haunted pasts and their attraction to each other.

Just as the case seems about to break open, worse news arrives: a tropical storm has turned their way. Now they're cut off from any rescue--right where the killer wants them. 


Another great read by Dani Pettrey and the second book in this new series!
A wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon following Rissi and Mason as they solve their case on an oil rig along with different complications getting their way!
I loved guessing whodunit in this book! It's not who you think it is at first!
There were different places in this book that will make you laugh and if not at least grinning at the team member's gentle banter throughout the book. It's what I liked best about this book.
Pettrey has a way of keeping you on the edge of your seat to see what Rissi and Mason and the other team members will do next!
Another thing I liked was how Pettrey has indeed done her research for the investigation part of this book so we'll that she's made it so believable and real like you were a part of the team yourself! This book was fantastic!
I'm looking forward to the next book in this series because this sure did not disappoint! I highly recommend this great read! You'll not be disappointed!
My thanks to Netgalley and Bethany House for a copy of the book. I was NOT required to write a positive review for this book.
