Newlyweds Erin and Mark are on an extravagant honeymoon in Bora Bora. On their way to a diving excursion, they come across papers floating in the water and something knocking against their boat. The item is a duffel bag filled with diamonds, cash, a burner phone and USB drive. Near the location where they found the bag, Marc dives under to find a crashed plane of what he tells Erin are really bad people.
Mark had just lost his job in banking and this is why they had to cut their honeymoon short. Erin’s salary as a documentary film maker isn’t enough to pay their mortgage or finance the family they hope to start. With Mark’s banking knowledge, they believe they can sell the diamonds and deposit the money in a Swiss bank account without raising any suspicionsl, which means their financial troubles will be over.
But taking money that doesn’t belong to you comes at a price. Erin believe someone is watching her. Is it the owners of the money wanting it back? And as Erin goes back to working on interviewing three inmates for her documentary, the actions of one of her subjects may have the police digging into her personal life. And the more complicated their lives become in hiding the money, the more the lies begin to grow…can they even trust each other?
This page-turner isn’t necessarily a stand out in the crowded psychological thriller genre, but I certainty enjoyed it. Even though I hated the decisions of the characters, the different plot threads kept my interest throughout. Recommended.
