Bane Oanu is in search of a sunken Spanish ship, rumored to have treasure. But his plane is sabotaged and he is forced to parachute into the sea where his former fiancťe rescues him. His plane lands near the sight of the sunken ship, and when he dives down, he finds a cannon ball. But his best friend, Tony, who was diving with him, surfaces too fast and is dead when he reaches the surface. Foul play is suspected.

Leia Kahale settled in an old leperís colony on a small Hawaiian Island after ditching a promising medical career in favor of natural cures. She doesnít know what to think about Baneís return. She still has feelings for him.

Soon dangerous things start happening. Human remains are washed up on shore. Earthquakes are cracking the earth near the shipwreck. Time is running out. But rumor has it that the treasure isnít there anyway, and someone is stalking Leia. How can they sort it all out when it seems everyone has something to hide?

Dangerous Depths is the third book in the Aloha Reef series and easily stands alone. In my opinion, itís the best book in the entire series. I loved Bane, he is a true hero, and Leia is realistically developed. I cared what happened to these characters.

The setting in realistically described, it seemed I dived with the characters and saw what they saw. I ran the full range of emotions with this book. Dangerous Depths is not a book to be missed. The faith message is expertly woven in, the suspense is riveting, and thereís even a romance. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book as well as an excerpt to Ms. Cobleís newest book, Fire Dancer.
