When History and Fiction Meet
This story might remind you of COLD EVIDENCE (with a little POISON EVIDENCE thrown in)….
The following brief excerpt is from WorkBoat.com. If you’re as fascinated as I am by ocean discoveries and how they happen, I highly recommend reading the article.
“Veteran ocean explorer and Tiburon Subsea CEO Tim Taylor and his “Lost 52 Project” team have added to their list of ocean discoveries with submarine USS Stickleback (SS 415). The submarine was lost 62 years ago in close to 11,000? of water and is one of four submarines that suffered this fate during the Cold War.
In nine years, Taylor and his Lost 52 Project Team have discovered six U.S. submarines utilizing pioneering robotics and methods at the forefront of today’s underwater technology. By applying a combination of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV’s), remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s), and advanced photogrammetry imaging technology, Taylor and his team have amassed the most comprehensive historical archaeological records to date, the team said.”
The frigid waters of the Pacific Northwest
are about to get hot…
The only thing Navy underwater archaeologist Undine Gray fears more than facing former SEAL Luke Sevick is never scuba diving again. But when a dive on a Cold War-era US Navy submarine ends with an accidental explosion, she’s terrified of going into the deep, forcing her to beg the most experienced diver she knows to take her back to the bottom of the cold Salish Sea.
Luke wants nothing to do with the woman who destroyed his career 12 years ago but finds it impossible to turn his back on her plea. Caught off-guard by an attraction he doesn’t want to feel, he’s eager to be done with this mission of mercy. But when they dive on the wreck, he only gets sucked in deeper. Someone has been digging on the Navy sub…and it appears the explosion that almost killed Undine was no accident.
To find the truth, Undine must navigate murky waters and the unexpectedly hot undercurrents swirling between her and Luke. Worse, divers are searching for something lost in US waters during the Cold War, and they’ll do anything to keep Luke and Undine from finding it first.
It was supposed to be paradise…
Ivy MacLeod has the perfect opportunity to test her advanced remote sensing technology: mapping a World War II battle site in the islands of Palau. The project is more than an all-expenses-paid trip to paradise. It’s also an opportunity to distance her reputation from her traitorous ex-husband.
But foreign intelligence agencies will kill to possess her invention, and paradise turns deadly when her ex-husband’s vicious allies attack. In desperation, she turns to Air Force pilot Jack Keaton. But is he the bigger threat? Jack might be protecting her as he claims…or he could be a foreign agent. Her compass is skewed by his magnetic pull and further thrown off when she learns her own government has betrayed her.
Stranded on a tropical island with a man whose motives remain a mystery, Ivy must decide who is the spy, who is the protector, and who is the ultimate villain. She longs to trust the man who rescued her, but she’s risking more than her heart. Choose right, and she saves her country’s secrets—and her life. Choose wrong—and she risks nothing short of all-out war.
