RCMP Sergeant Ray Robertson is in the Turks and Caicos Islands, enjoying two weeks of leave from his job training police in Haiti with the UN. On an early-morning jog along famed Grace Bay Beach he discovers a dead man in the surf. Ray is shocked to recognize the body as that of one of his Haitian police recruits. To his wife's increasing dismay, Ray is compelled to follow the dead man's trail and finds himself plunged into the world of human trafficking and the problems of a tiny country struggling to cope with a desperate wave washing up on its shores.

This timely story is the third in the Sergeant Ray Robertson series.
Ottawa Review of Books - June 7, 2017
"It's short...and is intended to be read in one sitting...This is not to say, Delaney's writing is simple. To unpack a murder investigation in just over one hundred pages takes skill and precision. Every word counts, yet her description place us in the centre of the action...I can recommend this series for teens, especially ESL students and those with learning difficulties...In the merging of history, social justice, and contemporary characters, Rapid Reads offers accessible quality literature."
CM Magazine - February 10, 2017
"A good read. Truly page-turning and suspenseful. Highly Recommended."
