Dive Team Investigations

Go Behind the Scenes

The Carrington County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team is made up of a variety of law enforcement officers. Their leader, Homicide Investigator Anissa Bell is proud of her team and genuinely enjoys working with them. Well, with most of them. Her second-in-command is Homicide Investigator Ryan Parker. Ryan grew up in Carrington and has strong ties to the area. Especially to a certain nurse practitioner, Leigh Weston. White Collar Crimes Investigator Adam Campbell was also raised in Carrington on a very different side of the tracks. As a member of the wealthy Campbell family, he’s considered by many to be the city’s most eligible bachelor. He helps out with the family business, but what he enjoys most is investigating financial corruption and working with his friends on the dive team. And he never complains when his job requires him to liaise with Dr. Sabrina Fleming, a local professor whose expertise in cybersecurity and computer forensics has made her a vital asset to the Carrington Sheriff’s Office. And then there’s Investigator Gabe Chavez. Gabe worked undercover for years, and he liked it that way. But after his cover was blown by a nosy reporter he landed in the Homicide Unit. He and Ryan have been friends for a long time. He and Anissa? Um…well…it’s complicated.

Come join the Dive Team Investigators and their friends as they dive into murder, human trafficking and kidnapping cases. Through it all, they will discover that no matter what kind of evils lie beneath the surface or how many times they get in too deep on a case, God will be forever be faithful, even to their one final breath. 

Beneath the Surface – Book 1

After a harrowing experience with an obsessed patient, oncology nurse practitioner Leigh Weston needed a change. She thought she’d left her troubles behind when she moved home to Carrington, North Carolina, and took a job in the emergency department of the local hospital. But when someone tampers with her brakes, she fears the past has chased her into the present. She reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide investigator, Ryan Parker, for help.

Ryan finds satisfaction in his career, but his favorite way to use his skills is as a volunteer underwater investigator with the Carrington County Sheriff’s Office dive team. When the body of a wealthy businessman is discovered in Lake Porter, the investigation uncovers a possible serial killer–one with a terrifying connection to Leigh Weston and deadly implications for them all.

Dive into the depths of fear with an exciting new voice in romantic suspense. Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn grabs readers by the throat and doesn’t let go until the final heart-pounding page.

In Too Deep – Book 2

When the dive team is called in to recover a body from a submerged car, they aren’t prepared to find an encrypted laptop–or an unsettling connection between investigator Adam Campbell and the dead accountant.

Adam turns to his friend Dr. Sabrina Fleming–a professor at the local university with unparalleled computer security and forensics skills–to recover the files from the laptop. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier the investigation becomes. When evidence uncovers a human trafficking ring and implicates members of Adam’s own family, he and Sabrina will have to risk everything to solve the case.

The truth could set hundreds free–but someone is willing to do whatever it takes to silence anyone who threatens to reveal their secrets. Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn invites readers back to Carrington, North Carolina, where everything is not as it seems and sinister elements lurk behind the idyllic façade.

One Final Breath – Book 3 

When investigator Gabriel Chavez had his cover blown by an aggressive reporter, the silver lining was being able to rejoin the dive team. The downside? Dive team captain Anissa Bell–a woman who both fascinates and frustrates him.

Anissa grew up as a missionary kid on the Micronesian island of Yap and always planned to return after college. But she remained stateside, determined to solve the case that haunts her–the murder of her best friend and the disappearance of a three-year-old child.

When Anissa’s fractured past collides with Gabe’s investigation into the tragic shooting death of a teenage boy in Lake Porter, they’ll have to put their complicated history with each other aside in order to uncover the identity of a killer. What they’ll discover is that revenge has no statute of limitations.

Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn closes out her nail-biting Dive Team Investigations series with a story that will have you wondering how long you can hold your breath.
