Working in disguise and undercover with an assumed identity, Lo uses her unusual beauty to collect information on lawbreakers. She works for an independent agency associated with the FBI. Her boss knows she has a checkered past, but she's also smart and independent. Lo has a reputation--she always gets her man.
Her new job involves a cruise to the Bahamas with her boss to investigate an enforcer for the Mob. This one will prove to be like no other. By the end of the voyage she has chased suspects through the tropical islands, been in physical confrontations with knife, fist and firearms; the deck is awash in blood. Can she survive the deadly fun cruise--and her boss, who may prove to be more deadly than the Mafia men she uncovers?

Lo was crying, her hands over her face. "Do you know what they did to him?"
Torture would be a nice word in comparison, Dan thought. He knew exactly what they had done to her husband. He couldn't stand seeing her pain and moved over to sit on the bed beside her. He put his arms around her and pressed her head to his shoulder. He could feel her tears through his shirt.
"I can't seem to get over it," she said, her voice muffled against his shoulder.
"No one could, Lo. No one could." He rocked her in his arms as the waves rocked the ship and let her cry.
