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 listen

I wish publishers would oversee their narrator's use of voice changes. It is amateurish acting. Some in this book are harsh, others silly-sounding like 'marbles in mouth'. I had to stop listening to the book, though I like the author, P.T. Deutermann, very much.
