In a stunning debut novel featuring a resourceful female amateur P.I., Christine Kling establishes herself as a major voice in suspense fiction. Surface Tension depicts a world as deceptive as a Florida land deal, as electrifying as the hottest Miami nightclub, and as dangerous as the tug of an invisible riptide. . . . SURFACE TENSION Years ago Seychelle Sullivan had the chance to save a person’s life. But on that summer night in Florida, lost in a world of teenage resentment and loneliness, Sychelle was not able to feel any pain but her own. Today Seychelle captains her father’s forty-six-foot salvage boat out of Fort Lauderdale’s New River. She’s seen change sweep through South Florida, and witnessed friends and lovers come and go. But she’s never escaped that one moment when she could have made a difference and didn’t. Now each time she rescues a ship in distress, a little hope is born in her again. On a steamy Florida morning Seychelle is answering a Mayday call launched from the five-million-dollar Broward yacht called Top Ten. Racing her fiercest competitor for salvage rights, Seychelle has a personal stake in this rescue: Her former lover, Neal Garrett, is the yacht’s hired skipper. But being the first to reach Top Ten will lead Seychelle to a bloody payday. A beautiful woman has been stabbed to death onboard. And Garrett is nowhere to be found. Even on shore, the pressures are mounting–Seychelle owes money on her boat, and her love life is in shambles. Within twenty-four hours of finding the dead woman and towing Top Ten out of the surf, Sychelle realizes that she has stepped into a lethal business involving some of South Florida’s sleaziest criminals. While the police treat her as the prime suspect, Seychelle begins to unravel a tangled plot centered on a strip club where “all the girls are tens on top.” Discovering the sordid secrets of the owner of the yacht she rescued and the fate of the man she had once loved, Seychelle is connecting human predators with innocent victims, and a mystery on land with a mystery buried deep beneath the sea. Now, to find out what really happened to Neal Garrett, Seychelle must retrace his last steps, through two murders and a horrific crime wave, to a final confrontation with someone who may want to kill her . . . or be her salvation.

When Seychelle Sullivan, Captain of the salvage boat Gorda, steps aboard the Top Ten, a multi-million dollar yacht in response to a distress call she finds no one alive aboard. There is a body, the body of the young woman who had placed the distress call. There is a gun. But there is no sign of the Captain, Neal Garrett. Saychelle prevents the yacht from grounding and tows it to the coast guard station. She knows she is entitled to a sizable salvage fee. When she receives a small offering of $15K rather than the $25-30K she feels she earned, she is insulted and refuses to accept the money. This refusal leads to death and evil.

Suspenseful read. Believable characters and plot. ( )

Seychelles is relentless and quite clueless. Her story goes from one dumb act to ones that are terminally stupid. Clearly, the author watched too many episodes of Miami Vice while she wrote this novel. ( )

great storyline and enough twists, turns and surprises to keep you guessing ( )

I was going to give this a 3-star rating; but it's not worth it. The main character is TSTL for most of the book. The cop is stereotyped as a thuggish bulldog with blinders on. I kept getting this weird feeling that I should be watching an ugly mash-up of Miami Vice and CSI: Miami. ( )
