As a picturesque and perfect summer arrives in Michigan, a father and son prepare to sail around Lake Superior, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. It is a trip three years in the making and filled with planned stops for wreck diving, camping, and hiking. The water is deep, the wind is just right, and the sunsets are sublime. If there was ever a place for Robin and Tristian Norris to "get away from it all," the remote Superior coastline is it.

But when their anchor fouls, Robin not only uncovers a lost hoard of valuable gems but also discovers a mysterious stowaway aboard their boat. Who is she? And what is she running from?

What started as a paradisiacal trip quickly turns into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, and the trio is forced to battle high-tech pirates who'd do anything to reclaim their a nightmare that tests not only the trio's bond, but their will to survive.


I found this book on Hoopla it is the first in the Great Lakes Saga by Landon Beach. It can also be found in paperback for free with kindle unlimited. 

What starts out as a last fishing trip to bond father and son before the dad succumbs to cancer turns into kidnapping and uncovering deadly secrets.  As father and son take a summer trip to bond over dives and the rigging of a refurbished sailboat they find themselves uncovering treasure and stumbling on a kidnapping and a crazy rich man who prefers his women young and unwilling.  

This is a good story.  We see the son Tristian grow from a boy to a man during this trip and really start to understand his father and see him in a different light.  We also see Robin changing, from a careful family man to one who has nothing left to lose.  

The story line about the crazy rich guy is disturbing and probably happens more than we care to think about.  His current "wife" knows she is being replaced and hopes to free her and save her from a similar fate but is also torn by the years of brainwashing.  Sometimes she was more of a hinderance than a help. 

Very good book, great narrator and well developed characters.  I really enjoyed this book.
