The Crushing Depths is the second book in the Coastal Guardians series by Dani Pettrey. As with the previous book, Dani Pettrey hits it out of the park with suspense and intensity. From the bond between the main characters, Rissi and Mason, to the CGIS team dynamics, you will be pulled into the drama and suspense of the investigation happening offshore on a drilling platform. The setting is a unique one that I have not encountered many times in the past but thoroughly enjoyed. The storyline is full of twists and surprises which makes the ending unpredictable. Overall, it’s an excellent clean read with a good dose of suspense. Readers will be waiting expectantly for the series to continue with the third book.
