Sean Reilly belongs to the gulf. The bond was forged when he faked his death by diving in, and honored as waves carried Sean out of a statewide manhunt and into Morgan’s saving graces. Six months after the events of Keep the Ghost, that same ocean brings our intrepid fugitive to a desolate island off Mexico’s east coast. There are just a couple thousand people on Isla Holbox, and only five police officers. Normally, he’d like that fine – but normally, someone isn’t trying to murder him.
Nothing is simple anymore. Back in the States, he could trust Morgan completely. She was his mentor and guide. Now, something has changed. Something from their past has reached Holbox, and Sean’s introduction to it rides along a bullet aimed squarely at him. Someone wants him dead, and he doesn’t know who or why. Morgan might, but when has she ever told him the truth?
And that’s just start of his problems. If Sean ever hopes to escape into the gulf again, he’ll have to break free from a box of his own making. In doing so, he’ll answer the question: Can a person ever truly remake themselves?
