Meet Seychelle – Lauderdale’s only female salvage captain.
A Mayday call on the radio. A drifting super yacht. Onboard, no one—other than the bikini-clad blonde with a knife in her back.
On a steamy Florida morning, Seychelle answers a distress call launched from the five-million-dollar Broward yacht Top Ten. Once aboard, she finds a dead woman, but Neal Garrett, a man Seychelle knows only too well and the yacht’s hired skipper, is nowhere to be found.
Within twenty-four hours of towing the yacht out of the surfline, Sey realizes her big salvage claim, might also have signed her death warrant.
From strip clubs to waterfront bars, Seychelle Sullivan navigates the dark side of paradise to a final confrontation with someone who may want to kill her…or be her salvation.
