St. Simons Island becomes a scene of panic as bodies are washed ashore. First blaming the deaths on sharks, police soon realize the predator is human. A killer stalks the tourists, luring and drowning his victims as easily as he eludes discovery. Tides of Fear, a suspense thriller set on the shark-infested Georgia Coast, includes a hunt for a murderer, with water as the crime scene.
Drawing upon the author’s experiences with high risk children, local police agencies, victim assistance, rape crisis counseling, mediation and PhD research, the work explores the dynamics of violence and its effect on victims and their families. Catherine Lindsay’s insights into serial murderers and rescue diver Danny Wong’s analysis of the ocean as a crime scene add depth and authenticity. Tides of Fear was written for those who love suspense thrillers and police procedurals
