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.

From New York Times bestselling author Andrew Gross comes the long-awaited return of detective-turned-global-troubleshooter Ty Hauck in this topical and unrelenting thriller

Whitewater guide Dani Whalen finds a body washed up on the river's edge outside Aspen, Colorado, and is stunned to discover it's Trey Watkins--a close friend. Watkins's death is quickly ruled an accident. But Dani isn't convinced even if Wade Dunn, the local police chief and her ex-stepfather, also believes Trey's death was accidental. Undeterred, Dani secretly builds her case, and when Ron, a hot-air-balloon operator who insists he saw something that day to back up her claims, is killed himself in a fiery crash, Dani threatens to take her suspicions public.

When Dani's father contacts his old friend, Ty Hauck, and asks him to help his daughter, Ty doesn't hesitate. Soon Ty and Dani become ensnared in a sinister scheme running deep beneath the surface of a quiet Colorado town. But there is one resource 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 while the stakes grow even higher.
