One Mile Under by Andrew Gross


Being a white water guide ​was Dani’s dream job, but finding a dead body of a friend as she was completing a run put a whole different light on her dream job.

Was her friend's ​death an accident or was it murder? Too many things happened after she found the body to convince her that it was simply an accident.

The tension and the action escalated once Dani and her Uncle Ty decided to investigate.  They became involved in an unscrupulousness scheme by environmentalists.  ​Murder, corruption, and folks being paid off made ONE MILE UNDER an​ action-packed thriller.

Dani and Uncle Ty were likable ​characters ​along with the folks that were being victimized by ​the ​environmental corruption.  ​Most of the other characters were deadly,​ frightening, dishonest, and cunning.

ONE MILE UNDER took a few pages to get interesting, but once it got going you won't want to put the book down. The ​detailed action was intense, and will have you feeling the fear and sharing the fear of the characters.  The book had me on the edge of my seat.

Any reader who enjoys fast-paced, gripping, page-turning thrillers will definitely enjoy ONE MILE UNDER.  4/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.​


  1. I do love a book like that from time to time. This sounds like a page turner!

  2. It was very good.

    Thanks for stopping, Kathy.

  3. Hi Elizabeth - Sounds good to me. I think the cover is attractive, too. :)

    1. Yes...nice cover with those rapids. Not something I would do, though. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Diane.

  4. Hi Elizabeth,

    I have added this one to my 'Want To Read' list, although with some trepidation. One of hubbies best friends in the R.A.F. and best man at our wedding, was killed white water rafting, as he and his new wife celebrated their last holiday together before the birth of their first child.

    I am also a scaredy cat when it comes to water, having never been able to swim. Too much water for me, is getting my face wet in the shower!

    Having only come across any of Andrew Gross's work when he has been co-authoring with someone else, I am interested to check out his individual style of writing and you so obviously enjoyed the experience, that it has to be worth a shot :)

    Thanks for sharing,


    1. I would NEVER go white water rafting either. I am a scaredy cat too. :)

      I think you will like the book. I have read a few books by Andrew Gross.

      Thanks for stopping, Yvonne.

  5. Elizabeth, I'm glad this book had you on the edge of your seat. It sounds quite intense.

    1. It did make me tense, but it was good.

      Thanks for stopping, Suko.
