Publisher's Summary

An explosion rips through New York City's Grand Central Station one morning, destroying the train Karen Friedman's husband, a successful hedge-fund manager, is riding in to work. Days later, with many bodies still unidentifiable, Karen resigns herself to the awful truth: her husband of 18 years is dead.On that same day, a suspicious hit-and-run accident leaves a young man dead in Karen's hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut. Ty Hauck, a detective, becomes emotionally caught up in the case and finds a clue that shockingly connects the two seemingly unrelated events.Months later, two men show up at Karen's home digging into Charles's business dealings. Hundreds of millions of dollars are missing - and the trail points squarely to Charles. With doubt suddenly cast on everything she has ever known, Karen, with Hauck, steps into a widening storm of hedge-fund losses, international scams, and murder. And as the investigations converge, these two strangers touched by tragedy are pulled into a deepening relationship and unwittingly open the door to a twisted - and deadly - conspiracy. With its breakneck pacing, plentiful twists, compelling characters, and abundant heart, The Dark Tide confirms Andrew Gross' place as a master storyteller at the top of his game.

I keep wincing as I listen to this book. The reader bothers me with her interpretation and acting skills. The book is so obvious that I smell the twists and turns before we arrive at the bend in the road.

Chick flick in disguise

Reader warning: This is a romance novel in disguise. If there is a book equilvalent of a chick flick, this book is it. If the reader said, "Oh Charlie, what have you done", I would have thrown up. Finishing this book was a chore and I would not recommend it as a mystery-detective novel. If you like fantasy romances with a little mystery, then this is the book for you.
