Melis Menid lives comfortably on a remote island near Tobago with her two dolphin "friends" Pete and Susie. Her quiet life is readily disturbed when she receives a letter from her foster father, Phil Lontana, deeding her the island and his precious boat. When she goes after him to find out what is going on, he witnesses Lontana's ship blown to smithereens with him on board. After her initial investigation, she discovers that an arms dealer named Archer had been working with Lontana to find the f ...more
The book had a very easy-to-read narrative, which made it quick to get through, but I found the characters were quite flat. I had no real idea of Kelby, and his face was completely blurred out in my imagination because he was so one-dimensional, which was a fault of all the characters.

What a read. What an adventure. Suspense and danger at every turn of the page.
Very BAD BOOK. I still regret for buying this book. Very clumsy story. Awful characters. Didn't read it till the end.
