The Devil's Deep
Chad Lett is a mute witness to an attempted murder. He suffers from total paralysis, locked within a prison of his own mind. After years of silence, he establishes contact with a young nurse's aid through a single blinking eye, but then she is abducted and a staff member begins to administer dropperfuls of cleaning solution into his communicating eye.
A heart-pounding thriller that will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned, the Devil's Deep travels from the hell of a long-term care facility to the rain forest of Costa Rica. And a crime committed under tropical waters, the dive known as El Bajo del Diablo—the Devil’s Deep.

To confirm her suspicions about a missing patient, she must go undercover and join the army of aides who care for the sick and mentally ill of some of the country's wealthiest families. But as she digs deeper, she learns that nobody is safe when the wealthy and powerful wish to bury their past.
