A Hidden Heart of Fire by Edna Dawes
Who knows the secret hidden beneath the depths?
When fashion photographer Nancy Martin visits her aunt on a Pacific Island, she finds not a tropical paradise but an Australian Marine Sciences Research Station with only basic facilities, and staff mourning the drowning of a colleague.
Aware of uneasy relationships, Nancy soon discovers the research director is making secret dives at Disaster Point, a treacherous depth well beyond their working area. Taking with him a newly arrived underwater photographer who struggles to know one end of a camera from the other, it soon becomes clear to Nancy that some people are driven by a reckless need to meet a challenge.
A Hidden Heart of Fire is a cautionary tale that will take readers on a journey of thrills, reminding us how the desires of the human heart are a constant surprise.
