About the Book:
Everything’s going to work out. Time away always makes things better . . ..
That’s what FBI Special Agent Raleigh Harmon believes as she boards a cruise to Alaska. A land of mountains and gems and minerals, The Last Frontier is a dream destination for this forensic geologist who’s hoping to leave behind a hectic work schedule and an engagement drained of romance.
But when a passenger goes missing and winds up dead, Raleigh’s vacation suddenly gets lost at sea. The ship’s security chief tries to rule the death a suicide, but Raleigh’s forensics background points to a much darker conclusion: Somewhere onboard, a ruthless murderer walks free.
Engulfed by one of her toughest cases yet, Raleigh requests assistance from the FBI and receives her nemesis-perpetual ladies man Special Agent Jack Stephanson. As the cruise ship sails through the Inside Passage, Raleigh has five days to solve a high-profile murder, provide consultation for a movie filming onboard, and figure out her increasingly complicated feelings for Jack-who might not be such a jerk after all.
And that’s only her work life. Family offers even more challenges. Joined on the cruise by her mother and aunt, Raleigh watches helplessly as disturbing rifts splinter her family.
Like the scenery that surrounds the cruise ship, Raleigh discovers a situation so steep and so complex that even the mountains might bow down.

Newly engaged FBI Agent Raleigh Harmon needs to get away to make sure things will be all right, and she’s making the right choice. But, once she boards the boat, she’s not quite as “away” as she thinks….a MOB turns up and it’s a suicide attempt….of is it? From page one, Sibella Giorello pulls the reader in when the suspense begins. You’re following Raleigh on her cruise, you’re helping her rely on God to work the case out and her life questions, and you’re helping with the clues-what ones that Raleigh can find! From the first page to the last page, Raleigh’s work and FBI talents shine through.
If you love mysteries, then you’ll LOVE the Raleigh Harmon novels. This one is worthy of 5 stars and doesn’t let the reader down. While each can easily be read as a stand alone, it’s best to read them in order. Sibella Giorello and her complex character, Raleigh Harmon, are here to stay and I’m anxious for the fourth addition, The Stars Shine On– due March 2012!
