Devil's Harbor by Alex Gilly
Nick Finn isn't sure exactly when his life went off the rails. Was it the night he and his brother-in-law, working their shift as Marine Interdiction Agents for Customs and Border Protection, intercept a suspicious boat with tragic consequences? Was it the day they found a teenage boy floating in the channel, his legs gone in a shark attack? Or was it the day Finn decides to take another drink after months on the wagon?
Whichever was the decision point, Finn is now faced with issues. His wife, Mona, has left him. His job is in jeopardy as he faces an investigation into what happened on the water that night. Worse, as he tries to find out what is really happening, he stumbles into a plot that is sickening and far beyond anything he ever expected having to deal with.
Alex Gilly's debut novel is a fast-paced thriller that will keep readers going until the last page. Full of surprises and twists and turns, the reader will not only be surprised but educated about the work of Customs on the seas surrounding us and the drug cartels they battle. This book is recommended for thriller readers.
