What an absolutely incredible thriller!
As soon as you start this book you find yourself thrown into a really intense story! As Nadia grows up an learns that her father is not the man she thought he was, her mother cold and her sister a prostitute her dysfunctional family could be a complete story in itself!

The character building is exceptional and the author spares no details in his description he really is a very skilled story teller! The diving scenes in particular are so detailed that it feels impossible that you aren’t there living it with Nadia and her diving crew!
