The Girl Beneath the Sea ePUB ½ Girl Beneath the This was a good thriller I am a fan of Andrew Maine s The Naturalist series and I found by comparison this wasn t as good. After seeing this recent publication by Andrew Mayne make such a splash across the reviewing platforms, I wanted to have a look for myself Sloan McPherson has underwater diving in her blood, having grown up with it as her father taught her all there was to know When she is not contracted out to dive for one of the local police services in Florida, Sloan is scouring the depths on her own One day

platforms, I wanted to have a look for myself Sloan McPherson has underwater diving in her blood, having grown up with it as her father taught her all there was to know When she is not contracted out to dive for one of the local police services in Florida, Sloan is scouring the depths on her own One day while pleasure diving alone, a major faux pas Sloan has a body dumped in the water in front of her Panicked, she resurfaces to see what s going on, but cannot make out who did the deed After alerting her colleagues, Sloan realises that she is in deeper trouble than she first thought, as someone has stolen her identification, notifying them where to find her While Sloan does her best to let the case work itself out, she cannot stand idly by and wait for the answers to surface Paired with a man who is anything but a family friend, Sloan begins to explore the possibilities that this may not have been a random body dump Further, it would seem that the likely retribution by a drug cartel might have ties to the locals and feds Sloan discovers the murky waters that see the Drug Enforcement Agency pairing with the local drug runners and the riches that can be had by turning the other way Deputised and given a gubernatorial nod towards an underwater investigative service, Sloan learns that there s a massive payload offshore and she can only hope to blow the whistle, confiscating it before someone makes a pile of money and keeps on killing to keep the secret With the help of her father, Sloan is going to have to get the answers and make the dive of her life, or fear that she s the next body to sink to the bottom, food for the fishes An intriguing novel that pushes the reader to new depths when it comes to police investigating Recommended to those who love police procedurals that work from unique angles, as well as those who enjoy all things related to the world of diving.I ll admit, I knew nothing of Andrew Mayne when I started this book, which might be why I come at it from a different angle than others While many a review gave some lukewarm sentiments towards this piece, I was quite interested in the angle and delivery by Mayne Sloan McPherson provides a refreshing look at the protagonist s role, given a lead in a field that does not usually rise to the top of a police procedural Her love of the water is countered only with that for her young daughter, a product of a relationship that was doomed before it began Sloan also carries the weight of her family s reputation with local law enforcement, including an uncle who was charged with drug offences Sloan battles this and a determination to do all she can, while unable to let those around her grab all the glory while she is exploring the depths of the water Others complement Sloan s tenacity throughout this piece, offering her some depth while keeping the story moving along Mayne does well to introduce the reader to the world of diving and the politics of the Florida Coast with this book, providing a story that moves well and keeps the action going The terminology seems on point and educates the reader throughout, while this series debut has me wanting a littleto see if an underwater diver within the police force can make for an effective angle of crime fighting While many have tossed up their hands with this piece, I m curious and not afraid to say that I seekfrom Andrew Mayne in the coming years Kudos, Mr Mayne, for the great lure to a new series I ll keep my eyes peeled to see what else you have to offer with Sloan McPherson, as well as checking out some of your other work Love

of 20 I ve read all of Andrew Mayne s book and enjoyed them immensely One reason I like them is that his lead protagonists are not the usual suspects detectives, PIs, journalists or ex special forces Instead we ve had a computational biologist and a magician, from a long line of magicians, who also happens to be an FBI agent This book introduces a new character, Sloan McPherson, of the semi

and so on and body retrievals I have to admit it took me a while to warm to Sloan and to get into the story But then, once we were introduced to whole zany cast of characters, it took off and I was fully on board.Sloan is also doing a PhD in archaeology and her supervisor is keen for her to explore a certain deeper hole in the Florida canals for potential artefacts Sloan findsthan she bargained for no artefacts but one dead body is the tally So that was the splash she heard It seems the young woman, whose throat was cut was thrown in while Sloan was underwater Was that deliberate The victim is soon identified as Stacey Miller, someone Sloan knew as a teenager years ago From then on she seems to be target of legitimate and not so legitimate operators who think she knows something about a shady lawyer s missing millions and incriminating documents Well she doesn t, but after a few close shaves she soon realises that finding said funds and documents may be the only way she can stay alive Her ragtag team hatch a preposterous plan to find what everyone is looking for and have some pretty exciting adventures at sea and underwater as they try to evade the bad guys What it lacked in realism it made up in the fun factor Mayne s books are always fun to read 3.5 stars rounded up Thanks to Netgalley, Thomas Mercer and Andrew Mayne for my review copy Check out all of my reviews at

book also has the added intensity of being set in the world of professional divers in south Florida.Sloan McPherson comes from a long line of scandalous smugglers and treasure hunters, but she has chosen the path of law enforcement She is an auxiliary officer who dives for evidence recovery to pay her way through school working towards her PhD and to support herself and young daughter.She surfaces from a dive, looking for archeological artifacts, to discover the recently murdered body of a childhood acquaintance The former family ties set up Sloan to be considered a suspect As Sloan tries to find out what really happened, she finds herself entangled in a plot that involves dirty public officials, secret government agencies and a ruthless cartel with only one ally the cop who put her uncle in prison This is a new to me author who blew me away I was completely immersed in all the action and intrigue even though I have never scuba dived in my life All the descriptions made me feel as though I was right there under water with Sloan while never slowing the pace and they never felt like a lecture or info dump.Sloan is a protagonist that I hope to follow for quite a while She is intelligent, determined and strong, has an intense need for justice no matter what and is a loving and protective mom I am also hoping that Run will play a bigger part in her life This is the first book in the Underwater Investigations Unit UIU series and I am looking forward to seeing what investigations Sloan and George Solar get involved in in future books.I highly recommend this new book and
