Summary

Everything's going to work out. Time away always makes things better....

That's what FBI Special Agent Raleigh Harmon believes as she boards a cruise to Alaska. A land of mountains and gems and minerals, the Last Frontier is a dream destination for this forensic geologist who's hoping to leave behind a hectic work schedule and an engagement drained of romance. 

But when a passenger goes missing and winds up dead, Raleigh's vacation suddenly gets lost at sea. The ship's security chief tries to rule the death a suicide, but Raleigh's forensics background points to a much darker conclusion: Somewhere onboard, a ruthless murderer walks free. 

Engulfed by one of her toughest cases yet, Raleigh requests assistance from the FBI and receives her nemesis - handsome Special Agent Jack Stephanson. As the cruise ship sails through the Inside Passage, Raleigh has five days to solve a high-profile murder, provide consultation for a movie filming onboard, and figure out her increasingly complicated feelings for Jack - who might not be as arrogant as she originally thought. 

And that's only her work life. Family offers even more challenges. Joined on the cruise by her mother and aunt, Raleigh watches helplessly as disturbing rifts splinter her family. 

Like the scenery that surrounds the cruise ship, Raleigh discovers a mystery so daunting that even the mountains might bow down before it.

Great story some flaws

Great story full of detail- but some of the details drag a bit too long at times - the generalisations about culture also seem stereotypical... Turkish people speak Turkish not ‘Mediterranean’ ... some of the comments to that effect seem to treat the reader as if ignorant of basic geography and cultural details....

Holds Your Interest

I read this out of sequence and able to understand characters. Her descriptions make the events come to life. Went to book one after reading this and have already downloaded all five. Worth the read.

Love all of this!

I love the Raleigh Harmon stories. She is a mixture of brilliance, vulnerability, fearlessness, curiosity and just likability you can't put down. I really couldn't imagine anyone able to read her or the miriad of characters and do them justice. Lisa Larson is perfect. I listen to this book so many times for the sheer enjoyment of it. Sibell Giorello is a gifted writer walking us through complex plots with dry humor, sweet sadness and beautiful validation that love conquers all AND it is tough to do. But Jesus modeled it even tougher than anything we go through. That's the core of her strength. I love this. Thank you Sibella and Lisa for beauty from the ashes.
