From the Publisher:
Melis Nemid is treading in dangerous waters - and she's about to be dragged under. As a marine researcher, Melis knows all too well the dangers that can lurk under even the calmest surfaces. But not even she can guess how deep the darkness runs. Only one oceanographer ever came close to discovering the deadly mystery that lies beneath the sea - and he's disappeared from the face of the earth.

Now Melis is the last one who knows the truth. And someone is determined that the truth will die with her. For what Melis knows about the deep-sea mystery is only part of a nightmarish past town by violence. She thought she had put that past behind her when she arrived at her Carribean island home to research dolphin behavior.

But her peace - and her life - is about to be shattered by the arrival of a savage killer. Someone - for reasons unknown even to Melis - is cutting a path of destruction and death that leads directly to her. Only one man can save her - a man who claims to be a fellow oceanographer. He will seek to gain Melis's trust, getting close to her secret and her life. But what this enigmatic man really wants, Melis may not discover until it's too late. Because whoever is after her knows her nightmares intimately, and soon she will be forced to relive them all over again.

Except for the final nightmare. The one she can't possibly survive.

Annotation:
Melis Menid lives an idyllic life on a tropical island, with her two pet dolphins for company. It's idyllic, that is, until an arms dealer becomes determined to ferret out a secret known only to Melis's foster father--a secret that could unleash radical mass destruction. Not only Melis but her beloved dolphins are threatened, until ex-SEAL Jed Kelby happens on the scene.
Author Bio
Iris Johansen
Known particularly for her novels of suspense, Iris Johansen has seen dozens of her books appear on the bestseller lists. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Johansen was a voracious reader from an early age. Later, raising two children as a single mother, she worked as an airline reservations clerk and wrote in whatever free time she could eke out of her busy schedule. She sometimes arrived at the airport at five in the morning, so that she could have a quiet hour to herself, and she often wrote in the car while waiting for her son and daughter to finish their afterschool activities. (Her son, Roy, is now a screenwriter and has also collaborated with his mother on several novels.) After both had left for college, Johansen quit her job to try her hand at writing full-time. "I was just as voracious a writer as I was a reader," she recalled to one journalist. She began her career by penning romances--many of them for Bantam's "Loveswept" line--and soon became a familiar name to fans of the genre. In 1996, she branched out into crime fiction, publishing THE UGLY DUCKLING, about the victim of a brutal assault who is determined to get revenge on her attacker. Johansen has since become known for her recurring characters, and among the most popular of these is Eve Duncan, a forensic sculptor who creates likenesses based on remains too decomposed to be recognizable. Eve, who is haunted by the murder of her own young daughter, made her first appearance in FACE OF DECEPTION (1998). "[The idea] came from seeing a documentary on the Discovery Channel," Johansen has explained. "I had never heard of a forensic sculptor before. I thought ?What if?' A lot of great stories have come from ?What if?'" IRIS JOHANSEN'S THE KILLING GAME, a film based on one of the Eve Duncan books, aired on Lifetime television in 2011.
