Surface Tension

What would you do if you discovered a $5M superyacht unmanned and adrift, a trail of blood across the deck, and a bikini-clad blonde with a knife in her back?

That’s exactly what Florida salvage captain Seychelle Sullivan finds when she responds to a strange woman’s Mayday call.

Worse, the missing skipper is Neal Garrett, her ex.

But when she ties the salvaged yacht to the Coast Guard dock, the Fort Lauderdale detective zeroes in on her as a suspect and raises questions.

Questions she can’t answer.

Is Neal dead or alive­?

Who is the dead blonde?

And who owns the lavish yacht Seychelle just salvaged?

She wants answers, too. Her business is in trouble, and this salvage claim against a yacht worth millions just might save her from having to sell her beloved tugboat, Gorda.


If you like hair-raising sea stories, tales of Florida’s underworld, and chase scenes through the Everglades, you’ll love Surface Tension and Seychelle Sullivan.

Meet Christine Kling

I love sailing, books, travel, and adventure! So, I think I have the greatest job in the world – I get to write stories full time as I travel the world aboard a boat with my husband and our canine crew, Barney, the Yorkshire Terror.
I’ve been sailing most of my life and that led me to set my first nautical suspense novels on the waterfront. Featuring a female tug and salvage captain, Seychelle Sullivan, there are now five books in the South Florida Adventure Series: SURFACE TENSION, CROSS CURRENT, BITTER END, WRECKERS’ KEY, and MOURNING TIDE.
My second series began as something new and different for me, as I shifted to writing international thrillers. In the first book of the Shipwreck Adventures series, CIRCLE OF BONES: a Caribbean thriller, a female solo sailor, Maggie Riley, and a maritime archeologist (and conspiracy nut) Cole Thatcher are searching for the wreck of a World War II submarine. The second book, DRAGON’S TRIANGLE, finds Riley in Thailand trying (unsuccessfully) to forget about Cole while being drawn into a search for a missing WWII treasure. The third book in the series, KNIGHT’S CROSS, takes place on Malta in the Mediterranean where Riley and Cole not only find treasure, but also love at last.
If you love books about adventure, crime and hijinks on the high seas, give my books a try.
