Why kill the survivors of a sinking ship?
A speeding boat rams a life raft, leaving no survivors. A man embroiled in an investigation of potential suicide bombers disappears…

But Charlie’s life is at risk on the rough Channel. All is not as it seems on the shifting seas, and some players are holding secrets that will change the game…and the sunken life raft is the key.

In W. Soliman’s Lethal Business, Charlie Hunter finds himself entangled in yet another intriguing mystery that has many unexpected twists and turns.
Once again, Charlie is unable to resist when his girlfriend, Kara Webb, asks him to look into the disappearance of family friend Gordon Reed. He reluctantly agrees to investigate and his cursory look into the missing man catches the attention of both DCI Jillian Slater and his ex-boss Gerry Monk. Charlie’s subsequent investigation uncovers a startling plot that has far reaching political implications.
Charlie is definitely evolving with each installment of the Hunter Files series. He is on better terms with his ex-wife and his relationship with Kara is on solid ground. Charlie is still pursuing his mother’s killer and his relationships with his stepbrother and dad continue to improve.
Charlie’s investigation into Gordon’s disappearance leads him back to the accident he witnessed. He uncovers puzzling information and his instincts are telling him to distance himself from the case. But threats to his loved ones force Charlie and Kara to continue and they are soon the unwitting pawns in a political game that could cost them their lives.
Lethal Business is an intricately plotted mystery that appears simple on the surface, but is in fact, multi-layered and complex. The storyline is fresh and deals with issues relevant to today’s political climate. Even the most seasoned mystery lover will be surprised by the stunning conclusion of this third installment of W. Soliman’s Hunter Files series.
