Publisher's Summary

When the body of a young, black Navy lieutenant is found chained inside the boiler of a mothballed battleship in a Philadelphia shipyard, there is no question that it's murder.Stung by past scandals, the Navy moves to control the investigation by appointing one of their own, Commander Dan Collins, to take charge of it. Dan's deputy investigator will be civilian Grace Ellen Snow from the NIS (Naval Investigative Service), the organization that should have been in control of the investigation.Dan and Grace make a connection between this murder, the death of the man's sister (also a Navy lieutenant), and a top Naval officer, only to have the chain-of-command curtain come down around their investigation. Convinced they can uncover those responsible for the murders, they secretly continue their investigation - a search that brings them to the attention of a cunning, remorseless, and relentless man.


What the Critics Say

"Deutermann's third mystery, though conventionally constructed, is brought off well." (Booklist)
"J. Charles manages characterizations that superbly reflect the voice of a man whose larynx has been brutally cut. Rugged where necessary but equally capable of smooth, soothing voices, he produces an effective and exciting audio presentation." (AudioFile)

This is a great novel!

This is a suspenseful novel and one you shouldn't miss. If you're not familiar with military jargon, don't let it stop you from reading on. You'll understand before you know it. It has lots of twists and turns in this story.

Can't deal with the narrator

P.T. Deutermann is one of my favorite authors. I have tried several times to listen to this book and just can't get through it. The narrator belongs to children's books. How disappointing to have wasted my money on this. I can't tell you about the story...I yank it away from my ears and it plays for no one. It is a shame, because Deutermann is a great story teller. I will just buy the book and read it myself!!!!
