    Good Mystery/Suspense Read

    Good suspense mystery novel, definitely keeps you guessing (which I am as I still have the last few chapters to read). Many things going on right now in my life but I want to see how this turns out. Well written, great character development and a mystery that keeps you guessing. What more could you want in a great read.

    What will you do to control the world's oil?

    Deep Water by Deborah Coonts is a fast-paced thriller about oil and the economic and political intrigue that go with it. And the power and danger that controlling it – or trying to control it – can bestow. This is the first book in her new Sam Donovan Mystery series, and I hope there are many more books just like this one. The story takes off at breakneck speed, introducing a lot of people, a lot of locations – and a lot of action. You have to pay very close attention to who’s who and what’s what. But it’s well worth it. This author is a favorite of mine, and I’ve learned from reading her other stories, especially the suspense, that every character, every word, has meaning and it will all come together in the end. So put on your thinking cap and get ready for a wild ride. The story is very contemporary and appropriate in today’s political climate. It doesn’t pull any punches. It’s intense. Everyone is playing a dangerous game and some will die. The suspense builds and builds and is almost unbearable at times. You’ll want to peek ahead, but don’t. The story has a little bit of everything: flying, oil, relationships, politics, the news media, danger, secrets, betrayal. It’s a big story with big personalities, big actions, and big consequences. Even the romance is intense, which is fitting. Light and fluffy wouldn’t be appropriate, and it would be annoying. The wording and actions can be rough, but it’s intentional and accurate for real life. The cast of characters is large but compelling. You want to know them better. This book was a pleasure to read. The plot is solid and the writing is excellent. The phrasing is nearly perfect, whether we are on the oil rig, flying, in danger, or having a romantic moment. The language and allegory are strong and descriptive, almost poetic at times. Once I picked this book up I couldn’t put it down. I received an ARC for an honest review. I highly recommend you start the Sam Donovan series with Deep Water. You’ll soon be anxiously waiting for book #2 just like I am.

    Great start to a new series

    This is my first book by Deborah Coonts. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story quickly grabbed hold and pulled me in. There are so many twists and turns that I really had to read carefully so I didn't miss any clues. I couldn't get to the end fast enough! Not because I wanted the story to end but I wanted to know the answers to all my questions. I don't understand why it is called A Sam Donovan Mystery. The story doesn't revolve around her. It was a little hard to keep up with all the characters because there were soooooo many secondary characters. I realize they were necessary but it was a little jumbled at times. I highly recommend reading Deep Water. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
