In Santa Barbara, California, a great white shark homes in on marine biologist Teri Marcus––the reader watches, but she doesn’t have a chance. To most, it was one of those rare accidents of nature, and yet, to her friends and colleagues, it seemed an impossible outcome for the seasoned diver. John Hunter, upon hearing the shark story, is intrigued and agrees to have a look into the death, in order for her friends to get past the horrible tragedy.


In Northern Ohio, a gentleman farmer dies when his tractor rolls over and crushes him. A microbiologist in India drives his car into a power pole late one night and dies of multiple injuries.   


The truth begins to emerge in Santa Barbara, and the trail leads John and Marin around the globe in search of two highly skilled killers––one a specialist in “accidental” deaths. During the course of the investigation, they discover the killers identities and track their previous movements.
