Publisher's Summary

While on a fly fishing vacation to Andros Island in the Bahamas, narcotics detectives Dix and Petersen discover their fishing guides were killed when a sudden blast of gunfire fractured their speedboat, Gray Ghost. Local gossip has it that Gray Ghost went to the ocean floor with a hundred million dollars’ worth of cocaine in the hull.
Dix and Petersen, against their better judgment, are drawn into helping their island friends even though it could cost them their careers. Leads are chased down in the Bahamas and Miami. The two detectives identify a diabolical plot of a sinister man known only as “The Caller.”
An elaborate trap is set for The Caller, but he's two steps ahead of the detectives. As the drama unfolds, it's unclear who can be trusted. When it appears The Caller will get away once again, lead detective Dix and his sidekick Petersen exhaust everything they have in an effort to capture the criminal mastermind.

Any additional comments?

I won this audio book in a contest, but I had previously purchased and read the ebook version. Here's that review: Well written action adventure that you won't want to miss. Two Miami-Dade police detectives head to the Bahamas for a much-deserved vacation of fishing when they inadvertently become involved with an international drug smuggling ring.

The characters are colorful and easily come to life. The story has just enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages in anticipation of the next action.

My hat is off to Chris Swinney for this masterpiece ... I look forward to reading many more.
