I m going to do two things I usually don t do in reviews I m going to start with the end of the book and compare it to another book When a friend of mine finished lets call the book, LBL she called me

compare it to another book When a friend of mine finished lets call the book, LBL she called me screaming about the ending I received similar calls from other books club members They could not wait for our meeting to ask me if what they were reading was what they actually were reading.I had the same reaction for In the Deep, an ending with me jumping up and down, screaming how did she do this How did Loreth Anne White LAW do this I can t tell you what she did, but she did it flawlessly So let me write about what I can write about The Hartley Heiress, Ellie Tyler, a woman withgrief than anyone should have to endure, thinks her life is leaving the darkness behind when she meets property developer Martin Cresswell Smith Martin takes her from Canada, first on a whirlwind trip to romantic destinations Then after they marry, and Ellie packs up her old life, to their new home on Jarrawarra Bay, New South Wales on the south coast of Australia Martin is looking to find financial backing for a huge property he is trying to develop His original Chinese backers had to drop out Soon after arrival, Ellie s life once again spirals into darkness, drug abuse and violence No wonder it is such a relief when Cresswell Smith turns up as a floater Unfortunately for Ellie, she becomes Senior Constable Lozza Bianch s suspect 1 With good reason, as Ellie makes no bones about her relief that Martin is dead a good look for him as the reader will agree with Ellie If only the ravenous mud crabs hadtime to dispose of Martin.The book begins with the murder trial, which has garnered world wide attention with all the best parts, an heiress, drugs, domestic violence, kidnapping, and murder What is not to love for a public voracious in their wanting to know everything about the lives and private grief of the super rich LAW provides a little bit of magic with the characters as very few are likeable or sympathetic, but they are oh so compelling Maybe some reluctant sympathy and admiration for Ellie I am woman, hear me roar No doubt she has had some tremendously bad years Total cheering for Detective Constable Bianchi, she gets it As for Martin Cresswell Smith,applause for his gruesome demise as he is a total slime ball.Ellie is lucky enough that Cresswell Smith has rented a lovely house in a small town where she begins to make friends, despite her odd behavior They are welcoming to Ellie as newcomers are fairly rare This might be one of the strangest settings LAW has written about, but she does it perfectly Jarrawarra Bay sounds stunning, but the beauty of the ocean, its cliffs and beaches doesn t sound like it would outweigh the mysterious sudden appearance of flocks of flying foxes bats , mud crabs, jellies the size of volleyballs with venomous stingers, heavy humidity, murder threats and poisonous spiders I ve always heard most wildlife in Australia would as soon as kill you as not.Reviewers will write about twists and turns, but none are lies or false trails It s not Law s fault if we miss clues and cues It s all before our very eyes What the twists and turns do is lead the reader down a path of Linda Blair worthy head spinning In the Deep is good to the very last drop Watch the shells closely, EllieI say in my head, channeling my father s voice because life is a shell game only the tosser winsThanks to Montlake Publishing, Loreth Ann
