Swimming with the Dead

Praise for Swimming with the Dead



“Hannah Sampson is a cop, but with a twist. She’s in charge of the Denver Police Department’s dive and recovery team—retrieving evidence and investigating underwater crime scenes. For her, diving is a job, not recreation. Swimming with the Dead reminded me of the early Kay Scarpetta mysteries by Patricia Cornwell. I remember thinking when I read the first Scarpetta that it was going to make a great, long-lived series . . . the writing smooth, the heroine strong and yet vulnerable, the whole concept intriguing. . . . Ditto for Swimming with the Dead. I think it may be an even better series.”
