" J.S. Law is a powerful new voice , and his heroine Dan Lewis lives up to the title. She is fearless and doesn't quit in the faces of all odds. The murky world of submarines and murder make Tenacity addictively readable , and memories of it linger like dreams." -#1 New York Times bestselling author, Patricia Cornwell

Two hundred meters below the ocean's surface, you can't run, you can't hide, and the truth won't set you free.

An officer hangs himself in the engine room of naval submarine HMS Tenacity . A woman's murder bears disturbing similarities to an old case. Lieutenant Danielle "Dan" Lewis grasps for the truth before it submerges in the gray waters of the English Channel.

Cramped, claustrophobic, and under strict command, the confines of HMS Tenacity are unwelcoming in the best of circumstances. For Dan, the only female aboard, who must methodically interrogate a tightknit and hostile crew, it's her own special place in hell.

Recently reassigned to the Special Investigation Branch's Kill Team, Dan's hardheaded reputation precedes her. But facing an obstinate ship's company, a commanding officer too eager to close the case, and a constant threat of unfriendly male interest, she learns that under enough pressure everyone has their breaking point.

The main character is hard to like; she's so antagonistic toward everyone. But she is determined to get to the bottom of a supposed suicide and rape that she's sure are connected. When it's obvious that the Navy brass doesn't want her to figure things out, Dan forces her way onto the submarine as it heads out to sea, and disturbs the entire crew. I stopped reading when she was obviously going to be court-martialed and still wouldn't confide in her former partner, a tactic that nearly got her killed last investigation.
