"Exciting romantic suspense"
Over two decades ago in Marmet, Maine, local bank vice
president Frank Whitman vanished along with one million
dollars. The townsfolk ostracized Frank's wife and
daughter Sarah. Unable to cope, Frank's spouse committed
suicide and most of the locals sighed with relief when a
family friend took Sarah to New Orleans to raise her.
In the present, an armored truck robber tries to escape the
police by driving his getaway car into Flagstaff Lake.
Divers searching for the robber find a foot locker on the
bottom of the lake that contains Frank's body. Most of the
townsfolk including the Sheriff's office prefers the theory
that Frank's accomplice killed him, but Sarah, feeling
guilty about how she thought of her father over the years,
believes her father is innocent. She arrives in town to
prove her case. Knowing that Frank helped him straighten
out his life nightclub owner Tony "Silk" DeMarco returns
home from Chicago to assist Sarah. As Silk and Sarah fall
in love in front of a hostile community who wants sleeping
dogs kept quiet, someone goes one step further trying to
silence Sarah permanently.
DARK WATER is an exciting romantic suspense with the accent
on the tension though the romance is not ignored. The
exhilarating story line moves rather quickly forward
propelled by the lead couple, especially Sarah, seeking to
clear her daddy's name. Sharon Sala is in top form in this
town without pity powerful tale.
