Publishers Description P.I. Jake Rikker has been retained to find a stalker. A challenge that could help redeem his life-if he doesn't lose it first. A private investigator, kayak adventurer, and whale watching tour guide who specializes in salvage operations based out of an old, purple church, Jake Rikker is caught off guard by the request of his new client. Up-and-coming jewelry designer Elise St. Dennis wants him to find not a valuable object, but the menacing ex-con who has traced her to the small town of Fog Point. Elise is desperate and afraid to go to the police. So, seeing the job as an opportunity to take his focus off his divorce and his relationship with his estranged daughters, Jake throws himself into helping someone who clearly needs him. The fact that Elise is pretty, vulnerable, and unattached doesn't hurt either. Aided by his business partner, May-a crusty widow-Jake sets out in pursuit of the stalker. But as they draw ever closer to their prey it becomes terrifyingly clear that they have become not the hunters but the hunted ...

Masterful! Apr 13, 2008
Linda Hall is an excellent writer who combines just the right amount of suspense, mystery, and a pinch of romance with the foundation of faith woven through the whole.
Lots of suspense Jul 14, 2007
Wesley Stoller is out of prison, and that spells big trouble for Elise St. Dennis. On the day he was sentenced for murdering his brother, Wes threatened to find Elise and kill her. She knows her ex-brother-in-law, and is sure he intends to make good on that threat. Running scared, Elise hires Jake Rikker and May Williams, private investigators to locate the ex-con and make sure he can't find her. Jake is attracted to Elise, which gets in his way, but as the investigation turns up secrets he never expected to find, he discovers she's not all she claims to be.
Linda Hall is a new author for me, and I enjoyed her writing. Dark Water is a tightly woven, exciting blend of death and deception where nothing is really what it appears to be.
Dark Water makes for a great read Oct 1, 2006
Linda Hall is one of the best contemporary mystery writers and each year she gets better and better. Dark Water offers far more than a genre novel, though it certainly has mystery galore, danger and some fascinatingly creepy characters. Hall captures voice and paints complex characters with literary precision and great insight. I sure hope to read more about Dark Water's odd couple PI team, who run a whale watching business on the side out of a purple-painted building in fictional Fog Point. Hall's left room for the villain Moon to re-emerge in a subsequent book because he was never caught. AT least I hope that's what she's planning. What an amazing character.
Intricate Mystery with a surprise ending Sep 7, 2006
I love Linda Hall's newest book, Dark Water. I love the people she's created in Fog Point. As the mystery unravelled, I was riveted, and couldn't put the book down until I found out exactly what was going on.
Fantastic! Jun 25, 2006
Linda Hall is an incredible writer. This mystery captured my attention on the first page and kept me guessing through the twists and turns. Great insight on whales and a powerful, surprise ending. Can't wait to read the next book in this series!
