Review Tour + #Giveaway: Arid Sea by Norm Harris @GoddessFish

Arid Sea

(Spider Green Mystery Thriller Series #2)

by Norm Harris

GENRE: Mystery/Thriller (Legal Military)


Faydra “Spider” Green is a spirited Navy lawyer who wants nothing more than to do the right thing and see justice done. After reconciling with her father, former President William Green, Fay is asked to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Alvin Joe, a retired admiral. He has vanished – seemingly into thin air – from his Florida home, along with secret files for a top-secret military weapon. Alongside her bubbly, quick-witted sister and a handsome, affable Sheriff, Fay sets out to track down Joe. But she soon finds herself embroiled in a deeper and far more sinister plot involving an unscrupulous corporation, the mafia, and a truly evil man who has his sights set on destroying her.

In five minutes, her sister would be gator chow. She looked back to the spot where she had last seen Pearce. Her sister was swimming for all she was worth, with the gator hot on her heels. Pearce was a good swimmer. As Fay watched her sister make a valiant attempt to stay ahead of the gator, she recalled an observation Charles Darwin, the evolutionist, had once made: “He who hesitates is… lunch.” Fay grabbed the remaining speargun and prepared to swim to her sister’s aid. Just as she was about to leap from the boat, she spotted a shark. A giant bull shark hovered about three feet back and about five feet below the boat’s stern. Pearce was heading directly away from the gator’s jaws into those of the waiting bull shark. Were these two creatures working this area together? The gator herded Pearce toward Jaws Junior, and fish and reptile would split the profits? Out of the frying pan and into the fire, as they said – or in this case, out of the fire and into the inferno. Fay needed to think fast. She pointed the speargun at the shark. After shoving the gun into the water, she fired. She must have hit the fish, as the speargun ripped from her hands and disappeared into the water. This was not a good move on her part. Now there was an angry alligator, a wounded bull shark, and a blood trail in the water.

My Review:

Arid Sea is the second book in the Spider Green Mystery Thriller Series. Arid Sea is the first book by Norm Harris that I have read. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I can’t wait to read more from Spider Green’s world of mystery.

Arid Sea took off like a flash from the first page drawing me into its world full of mystery, suspense, and enough twists to keep the pages turning. Once I picked up Arid Sea I was immediately lost in its world as if I was a part of it. The characters were all fantastic playing their roles to perfection.

I really like mysteries, thrillers, and investigative stories and let me tell you Arid Sea did not disappoint in the least. Arid Sea is so full of mystery that it had me racing to the end to see how it all would turn out. It had me guessing from the moment I turned that first page about what was happening.

It filled me with lots of unanswered questions that I just had to know the answers to and the only way to get those answers was to keep reading none stop. And that is just what I did.

Faydra “Spider” Green is a Navy lawyer who is sent on an assignment to investigate the disappearance of a retired admiral, Alvin Joe. Alvin disappeared along with secret files for a top-secret military weapon. Fay is sent to find out what happened to this missing admiral.

What happened to him? Did someone take him? Did he walk away from his life on his own? If so where is he now? Why would he just walk away from his life and his wife? Was he murdered? Can Fay find this man? Can she find out what happened to him?

Arid Sea was a very intense and sad read that had me in tears on more than one occasion. I felt bad for Fay after she lost her memory and some of the things that went on in Arid Sea just broke my heart.

If you are into dark thriller mysteries then I do believe that you would definitely like Arid Sea. Give it a try. Grab a copy of Arid Sea today!  

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Norm Harris' first novel debuted on an Amazon bestseller list in 2002. It was a one-and-done, but now he's back with a plan to publish a couple of sequels to that first mystery/thriller of days gone by. Except for time spent in military service, he is a second-generation Seattleite (that's what they call those who dwell in the shadow of Mt. Rainier), with his legal beagle son, K-K, and five giant tropical fish. His upcoming release, Arid Sea, is the third book in what he hopes to be an award-winning Spider Green Mystery Story series.

Thank you for hosting and the review of my Arid Sea was beyond appreciated. You are the first to point out my story was "dark." I was not going for dark but I like it! And I promise no more sadness for you in the next two books. Maybe even some humor for you next up. Have a pleasant day! Norm Harris
