A thrilling adventure about one of the most dangerous jobs in the world—crab fishing—in "the debut of an exciting new voice that you must not miss" (James Rollins, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Bone Labyrinth).

Ed and his childhood friend Danny are in Kodiak, Alaska, preparing to join the Angie Piper's crew for another season of crab fishing. And while Ed is a relative newcomer to the perilous trade, he sees no reason to fear for Danny's safety.

After all, the Angie Piper has always been blessed with a stalwart captain, a crack engineer, and two time-tested pros to keep the operation running smoothly. Every season has a greenhorn, the one who works for a pittance while learning the ropes. This time around it's Danny. Brave and hardworking, Danny is a simple soul. And Ed is still haunted by the bullying Danny received as a child. But the cantankerous engineer believes a man like Danny is a bad omen, so much so that his bitter opposition may endanger them all.

The season starts off strong, but their luck soon turns. The skies grow dark, the waves swell, and Mother Nature bears down on them with her full arsenal. The only question is—when the storm finally subsides, who will be left to tell the tale?

About the Author-
  • A well-known veteran of the romance writing field, Carla Kelly is the author of thirty-one novels and three nonfiction works, as well as numerous short stories and articles for various publications. She is the recipient of two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America for Best Regency of the Year; two Spur Awards from Western Writers of America; two Whitney Awards, 2011 and 2012; and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Romantic Times. Kelly's interest in historical fiction is a byproduct of her lifelong study of history. She's held a variety of jobs, including public relations work for major hospitals and hospices, feature writer and columnist for a North Dakota daily newspaper, and ranger in the National Park Service (her favorite job) at Fort Laramie National Historic Site and Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site. She has worked for the North Dakota Historical Society as a contract researcher. Interest in the Napoleonic Wars at sea led to a recent series of novels about the British Channel Fleet during that conflict. Of late, Kelly has written two novels set in southeast Wyoming in 1910 that focus on her Mormon background and her interest in ranching.
