KIRKUS REVIEW

The most notable thing here is that this is the first time MacDonald has appeared initially in hardcover, although as he idles along, you might wonder what happened to what's happening since MacDonald has been so well established as one of the real hellbent storytellers in the business. Anyway it has something to do with fishing, of course, and salvage, of course, and upper case life and sudden death and a flippy girl who keeps telling him it's for keeps if he would only take what's she's saying about' her husband -- he's a killer -- more seriously. But there's a smashing scene at the end to make up for all that lost time when in McGee's own inimitable words life has been ""running out the bottom of the tube.
