When a former mermaid turns up dead, Eleri and Donovan are stuck with a case they never wanted, but can’t shake… Eleri—a former mermaid herself—should have been recused from the case. That’s her friend on the autopsy table and putting her in charge of the investigation violates more rules than she can count. But her Special Agent in Charge won’t let her off the case, makin When a former mermaid turns up dead, Eleri and Donovan are stuck with a case they never wanted, but can’t shake… Eleri—a former mermaid herself—should have been recused from the case.

Eleri, Donovan & GJ are given an assignment, which they request be given to someone else, but Westerfield will not take no for an answer. They relocate to Florida following the death of one of Eleri's friends, Allison. Her wife, Hannah has requested help from the FBI, believing her death to be suspicious. A newcomer based in Miami, makes up the FBI team of four. Allison was part of a marine research group, using oysters from four locations to investigate pollution. One of the four batches of oysters has tested positive for some unusual pollutants - cocaine & heroin. Checking barnacles from the same original location confirms the traces of the Class A drugs. A video of Allison's death underwater is found and it appears that her official cause of death - Accidental : Shark Atack is more complicated and deliberate than the death certificate implies. The video shows someone stabbing her, the blood in the water attracting the sharks who kill her. Upon checking her diving vest, they find puncture marks, corresponding to the wounds displayed on screen. GJ asks her fellow agents to review the video again , paying particular attention to the attack. The assassin appears to stab her, but is three feet away when he makes the stabbing motion with a knife and she starts to bleed. Another unusual occurrence for the Nightshade team. That is just the start to another superb book by a very clever writer who hears the beat of a different drum and follows it to a place where weird is the norm and certain humans have some very inhumane talents. The scenarios and skill sets in this book are obviously fictitious, but they do leave wondering if.......

    The book has an interesting story to go along with the already interesting characters we know from the world of Nightshade. Having a new character introduced and a younger one begin the maturation process are welcome additions. I think the best part of this book was not knowing who should be trusted and who should not - that seems to go not only for other people, but for our favorite agents' intuition. If I write much more I will start to give away plot and I do not want to do that.

The book should not have taken as long to read as it did - I usually read two books simultaneously. It is fast-paced and action packed. I am enjoying the character development in the series. I am waiting to see more of Christina and Walter, not to mention what GJ can truly do. Also, I expect to see Noah again, maybe as part of Nightshade. Can we please have more Sin? Asking for a friend.

She is supposed to be this smart woman who has generations of witches running through her veins and the best she can come up with is to run away. That's not the type of person she is supposed to be and she left her friends to fiend for themselves. Very poor. I think Noah was the smartest one turning down the offer to join Nightshade.

Very nice that GJ is finally growing up. Not great that she doesn't see her true power.

    Interesting I loved that the team was back together but missed Walter. This was an interesting story about drug smuggling and an evil corporation. Somehow it didn’t really feel resolved, though.The bad guys were dealt a heavy blow but I feel that in the scheme of things Eleri and her team will be dealing with Miranda corporation and their connected “gangs” again. Looking forward to learning more about Donovan’s new found family and Eleri’s new found powers.

    The story continues! I love how the adventure transitions seamlessly from book to book from Vol 1 onward. Each story is fascinating and I loved this one too! These characters are all smart in different ways but have human flaws too. They are so relatable. The mysteries they have to solve are very interesting too! Please keep them going!

    I love Ms. Audience's work This is Book 8 and I'd advise starting with #1. I've totally enjoyed each of these books. The characters are engaging and the stories are very well told.

    I did enjoy aspects of this, such as the continuing elements of Donovan's back story and thr expansion of GJ's character, but found it a little drawn out and a little repetitive in the language used. This unfortunately made this a harder read than previous books in the serirs.

Sharks don't attack without reason, and what's more, stab wounds on the victim suggest this was murder. However, clear evidence shows there was no one nearby to have inflicted the wounds, which is why the special talents of Nightshade's recruits are required as they work alongside regular FBI agents and some of the victim's close friends. Investigating alongside "normal" people is always a challenge for our characters since the general population really shouldn't know about their abilities. Then again, who's normal? Highly recommended, but in my opinion all or most of the rest of the series should be read to fully appreciate the well-developed characters of the Nightshade team. I look forward to the next book. 5 stars. Absolutely.

    Dead Tide was another fantastic book in the NightShade Forensic Files series. It is a joy to experience the continued development of some of these main characters. It almost seems as though every time I believe I have them figured out, they develop a new quirk or a better understanding of themselves. The pace of the story was frenetic. I just could not put it down. The one part that bothered me was how freely one of the characters gave information out to the perpetrators in the story.

Throughout all of the stories, including this one, it is mentioned how much trouble some of the agents would be in if they let more people in on the powers they have, yet this agent had no aversion to telling everything. Perhaps there will be repercussions in a future story? Anyway, I would recommend this story to all fans of Scudiere as well as all fans of action/ thriller stories with a strong forensics backing. They will certainly enjoy it.

    I have read all the Nightshade Forensic Files books. This one was fantastic. Eleri and Donovan are sent to Florida by their boss to find out what happen to a diver. Eleri knows the people and should be taken off the case, Donovan hates the water and should be taken off the case. So why are they there? G J is on the team using her analogical skills. They also introduce Noah who has a hidden talent. Donovan is distracted by the knowledge of his brother and mother. -looking forward to learning more I have read all the Nightshade Forensic Files books. This one was fantastic.

    Rating: Four Wolves and a pup! ”Dead Tide” may well have been labeled ”Discovery of Whiches” (apologies to Deborah Harkness for a very bad pun).

    Withdrawals happens This is my last book until the next one comes out and I’m gonna go crazy!!! El is gone after this case! They fought like hell in this book and won, but at what cost? Donavon has a brother, GJ has grown a pair and Noah refuses to join them. There’s sea creatures, wolves in gangs and drug runners killing Ocean researchers. What a ride. And to leave me hanging saying Fisher is missing along with Pines? Argggg

    I've enjoyed all of the Night Shade books so far, but this one may be my favorite. Eleri is learning more and more about her considerable powers, and she and Donovan are up against creatures with powers they'd not ever encountered before. There's always a cliffhanger at the end, and this one has a doozy! I can't wait for the next book in this series! I've enjoyed all of the Night Shade books so far, but this one may be my favorite.

    I love A.J. What a mind A.J. .must have to conceive such incredible stories. A little slow in the beginning, but once it took off, it flew. Excellent, excellent action and storyline. Write faster is all I'll say. I love A.J. What a mind A.J. .must have to conceive such incredible stories. A little slow in the beginning, but once it took off, it flew.
