Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Lowell plunges into the adventurous and deadly world of underwater treasure hunters in a heart-stopping tale that superbly combines atmosphere, action, romance, and suspense

After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family's diving and marine-recovery business drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate's financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.

Holden Cameron was addicted to the adrenaline rush of active duty - including narrowly surviving an underwater explosives accident. The last thing the former British military diver wants is to babysit a family of thieves on a tropical island - even if they are the world-famous Diving Donnellys. But in his new civilian job, Holden must investigate the suspicious activity surrounding a Donnelly dive to recover treasure from the ancient wreck of a pirate ship.

When equipment, treasure, and even divers begin to disappear, Kate and Holden form an uneasy alliance to uncover the truth. But the deeper they plummet into the mystery, the closer they come to each other. Soon they are sharing their deepest fears and darkest secrets - and a combustible chemistry too hot to ignore.

    Into intelligent thrillers, mysteries and fantasy with humour and a well woven story. Historical and political fiction also interests me.

    "Night Diver"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    An easy holiday read, but not such a splendid listen. To be fair, with all those accents, it was a tall order to narrate well. The plot and sense of place were good but I was unconvinced by the dialogue or most of the characters.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was unable to do an English accent, particular male English accents without sounding annoying and pompous. This detracted from the story in several ways and made the male lead really unappealing and the love story uncomfortable. This may also not have been helped by some extra cheesy dialogue. The narrator generally did well with the variety of accents but there was a nasal quality to her voice that I found distracting.


    Did Night Diver inspire you to do anything?

    Despite the unconvincing dialogue, the plot of Night Diver was enjoyable and the description of ocean, Island and storm was elemental and inspires me to spend more time by the sea and in nature generally.

    "Story good, but the voices irratating."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    To read yes, but to listen to no. I have over 300 books in my library and I've never not finished an audiobook because of the person reading it, but this was awful.


    Would you recommend Night Diver to your friends? Why or why not?

    Read yes, listen NO!!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Justine Eyre?

    Don't know, couldn't get pass the voices.


    Do you think Night Diver needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Elizabeth Lowell is a fantastic story writer. I will read the book but I'm going to have to wait until I can get over the reader's voice before I read from scratch.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't someone listen to this book before they allowed this person to read the entire thing.

    "Didnt care for the reader. Story is good though."

    I have been reading Elizabeth Lowell books for years. Love her, and her stories. I have also listened to Justine Eyre and even though she doesn't make me want to stop listening, I just don't care for her voice. Or the timing. She seems to be whispering and then she is also kind of a monotone. I finished the book, but may have to reread it on my kindle to get the full scope of the story.

    "Terrible narration"

    Elizabeth Lowell is one of those authors that I automatically buy whenever a new book is released. I wish I had listenend to a sample of this one because I was ready to abandon the book after the first minute or so. I did finally get through it but I will be sure not to buy another book narrated by this person. The story itself was not one of Ms. Lowell's best but it certainly would have been improved by good narration.

    "so so story----irritating narrator"

    I have just about given up on an author I used to enjoy. Elizabeth Lowell's last 2 books were barely entertaining. This one was made worse by a narrator who mumbled and ran sentences together. I want my credit back.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was such a shallow, poorly written book I quit listening after three chapters. I am embarrassed I even bought it.

    "really annoying narration"

    Sometimes it's really hard to tell whether you might enjoy a story when the narration is really bad. This is one of those cases for me. I'll probably give reading it a try in another month or so when I can stop hearing Eyre's voice speaking the words. I buy Lowell's books as they come out using pre-order because I have so much faith in her abilities as a story-teller. This is the second time I listened to this book hoping that I would enjoy it since my schedule doesn't leave me a lot of time to actually read compared to listening to audio books while I work on other projects. The narration seems mumbled, the inflection is odd and the accents for the British characters are enough of a joke to make it difficult to tell whether they are badly written characters or just badly narrated. After this second listening I felt I had to add my opinion to the mix. If I go back and read the book I'll consider updating the review trying to separate story from narration.

    narrator sounds like she is too bored to read the book. the story is exciting and vivid but the reader made it hard to feel those emotions.

    "Solid book Decent narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night Diver to be better than the print version?

    Story line is typical Elizabeth Lowell. I'm rarely disappointed by anything she writes. Some complained about the narration but I didn't find it that bad. It was not the best I've heard but it was also not the worst!

    "Not the best reader"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A much better reader. I better reader could have saved a so-so story.

    Not as a 1st choice. I use to read everything she wrote, but lately not so.


    What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

    Her voices were terrible, some you couldn't even understand.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed with the reader but the story wasn't up the the normally good Elizabeth Lowell either.
