Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher
The only thing Nina Kitchener misses in her life is a family. She has a great PR career, a best friend, a good life, but a lot of failed relationships with men and... a biological clock that is clanging away. Resolved to listen to it, she decides to have a baby on her own by artificial insemination and, following the advice of a reputable doctor, visits the distinguished but mysterious Human Fertility Institute. Eventually, Nina gives birth to a healthy, beautiful baby boy, but before she can even name him he is kidnapped from the nursery.

Helpless and alone, faced with an indifferent police bureaucracy, Nina becomes convinced that to find her baby she must discover the identity of the sperm donor. When she returns to the institute, it has closed down. Desperate, she finds herself on the track of the wealthy family who funded it, in a world totally foreign to her, the Bahamas. There she meets the great diver, the maverick Matthias, a man unlike any she had known, with his own reasons for dredging this mystery from the deep.
