After fleeing the crush of a partnership at a large Chicago criminal-defense firm and the humiliation of a professional breakdown, Devlin Winters just wants to be left alone with a couple sundowners on the deck of her dilapidated mahogany trawler on Galveston Bay. But when an old flame shows up on the boardwalk with a mysterious little boy in tow and an indictment on his heels, fate has other plans, and Devlin finds herself thrust onto a sailboat bound for St. Kitts and staring down her demons in the courtroom, as she squares off against an obsessed prosecutor with a secret of his own.

MY THOUGHTS -
A great action packed, full of suspense little gem that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning! At least it did that to me! What started out a tad slow for me turned into adventure very quickly.
There are really three parts to this story - the meet and greet, the sailing trip and "man overboard", and finally the courtroom drama. I love books with the courtroom drama, one of my favorite things to read about. But I have to admit, the sailing part had me riveted and glued to the edge of my seat.
Good character development - but I didn't feel particularly close to anyone. I didn't love or hate any of the characters. But they were still good and fun to read about.
If you love adventures, especially sailing adventure you would love this one!
