"Melis Nemid is a loner. Living on a Caribbean island with only one friend and a pair of dolphins for company, she is seeking to escape a nightmarish past. When an oceanographer is killed while attempting to find treasure, Melis becomes the target of treasure hunters, as well as arms dealers who want to get their hands on research into an underwater sonic gun. She must trust Jed Kelby to help her avoid the killers. The trite dialogue and weak writing of this novel are amplified when read aloud. Johansen's fans will love reading the book but may be disappointed listening to it. For Dunne, the male voices are a real stretch; though the female voices are better, she cannot overcome the book's overall problems. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
