In Andrew Mayne’s new novel, THE GIRL BENEATH THE SEA (Thomas&Mercer), Sloan McPherson is a badass. She comes from a family of scandalous treasure hunters, but has chosen a different path.
“Something is in the water.”
She’s an auxilary police officer, but not just the regular kind. She’s the go-to diver when the Lauderdale Shores PD need a diver to recover evidence in canals. There are thousands of canals and enough crimes happening to keep her busy. One day she’s on a dive to find artifacts for her Archeology class. But while underwater a woman is killed and the body tossed into the canal Sloan is diving in. Sloan retrieves the body and calls for the police, but not only are the cops there; DEA, FBI and other jurisdictions all show up. The time of death is placed when Sloan was underwater. When Sloan packs up to leave, she realizes her driver’s license is missing, meaning the killer stole it. She recognizes she’s stepped into something bigger than a regular DOA and the killer knows who she is.
Mayne takes us on a thrilling ride as Sloan is stalked by an assassin and drug cartel, while under the watchful eye of cops who know the family she comes from. Mayne’s descriptions are so realistic I felt as if I was on a dive with Sloan. He has created a strong, smart and sarcastic protagonist in McPherson – a tough woman! I Love her and I think you will too!
A best-selling novelist and magician, Andrew Mayne has performed his unique brand of illusion on five continents, his YouTube videos have millions of views and he’s cultivated thousands of fans for his magic, books and podcasts calling themselves ‘Mayniacs’.Taking magic in a new direction, Andrew created his own style of magic called “Shock Magic”; combining the impact of large scale illusion with the in-your-face approach of street magic. It’s fun, it’s irreverent, it’s the next evolution in magic. Andrew’s effects range from making ghosts appear on cell phones, shrinking himself to one foot tall and making a town think they were besieged by UFOs. His magic has even been performed for astronauts on the International Space Station! Andrew has invented over 400 magic effects and published 45 books and videos on the art of illusion. On the leading edge of magic and pop culture, he was among the first to invent magic for the iPhone (even before there were apps) via his website iPhoneTrick.com – that’s since been performed on millions of people.
