On Salvation Island, the townspeople are descended from the rogues and renegades - and their equally wily wives - who made their living from scavenging the wrecks of vessels lost at sea.
But perhaps the biggest treasure is one that's been long hidden among them, surrounded by the mists and intrigues of the past.... P.I. Dex Keegan has been hired to find Eugenia Stanhope's descendants and he won't rest until he's done just that. Eugenia was kidnapped as a child from her very wealthy and connected British family in the crime of the century and her descendants stand to inherit millions of dollars. It seems like an easy job, since you'd think the beneficiary would love to be found. But when Dex arrives on Salvation Island, piloted by the whip-smart and stunningly beautiful Maggie Solomon, he's in for a surprise.
To the island residents, secrets are an art form and they'll do anything to protect their own...especially when they see the desire ignite between Dex and Maggie, one of the island's favorite daughters. As Dex uncovers one clue after another, all signs point to Maggie being Eugenia's descendant. But when strange little "accidents" put her in grave danger, Dex will do anything to keep Maggie safe, even put himself in harm's way, to save the woman he's come to love.
