Description

In New York Times bestselling author Andrew Gross's propulsive thriller, set amid the drought-stricken oil country of Colorado's beautiful high plains, Ty Hauck makes his long-awaited return rallying beaten-down farmers and ranchers against a giant energy company in a deadly confrontation involving murder, retaliation, and cover-up.

Leading a tour down the rapids outside Aspen, Colorado, whitewater guide Dani Whalen comes upon the dead body of a close friend. Trey Watkins's death is ruled an accident. Finding evidence that seems to back up her suspicions that it wasn't, she takes her case to Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, with whom she shares some unresolved history. Wade insists the case is closed, but Rooster, a hot air balloon operator in town, claims he saw something from the air she should know. When he suddenly dies in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public, goading Wade into tossing her in jail.

When an old friend contacts Ty Hauck and says his daughter is in trouble, he doesn't hesitate to get involved. Together, the two step into a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet, Colorado town that has made a deal with the devil to survive. But in the square off between giant energy companies and beaten-down ranchers and farmers, one resource is even more valuable in this drought-stricken region than oil. They both will kill for it--water.

One Mile Under is a thrilling rapid run of hair-raising twists and unforeseen turns set against one of the most provocative environmental issues of our time.

In this long-awaited return of detective-turned-global-troubleshooter Ty Hauck, he and a courageous young whitewater guide step into a deadly showdown between downtrodden farmers and a clandestine energy giant bent on destroying their way of life in this topical and unrelenting thriller from New York Times bestselling author Andrew Gross

During a routine trip down the rapids outside Aspen, Colorado, whitewater guide Dani Whalen finds a body washed up on the river's edge, and it turns out to be a close friend. Trey Watkins's death is quickly ruled an accident by local law enforcement, but, reading the signs, Dani is convinced that something far more sinister has occurred. She takes her case to Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, with whom she shares some unfinished business, and he repeats the company line: Trey's death is not worth an investigation. Undeterred, Dani secretly builds her case, and when Ron, a hot-air-balloon operator who says he saw something up in the air that day to back up her claims, is killed himself in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public, goading Wade into tossing her in jail.

Ty Hauck has been sailing the Caribbean for three months, recuperating physically and spiritually from his last deadly case. When Dani's father, an old friend, reaches him and says his daughter is in trouble out west, Ty doesn't hesitate to moor his boat and get involved. At first reluctantly, but then full-on, Ty and Dani become ensnared in a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet Colorado town that has made its own deal with the devil to survive. But in the deadly square-off between giant energy concerns and beaten-down ranchers and farmers, there is one resource even more valuable than oil in this drought-stricken region: water. As Ty and Dani discover the true price that all will pay to get it, they're drawn in deeper as the stakes grow even higher.
