Rob Neto

Couldn’t put it down. Rob’s previous book, Beyond the Grate, was really good, but a bit improbable in parts. This book, Into the Darkness, really nails Florida cave diving and gets all the details right. You feel like you are actually there. I am already looking forward to the next book. – 5-star Amazon review

I absolutely enjoyed this sequel and was pleasantly surprised to see that the author took us on a completely new adventure. While I realize that the stories are fictional, the basis for many of them and the technical nature of the diving are page turners!

There’s something fun about rooting for the underdog and Joey plays the part well. I love Lindsey as the better diver, but seeing her pulled in again and the resulting passionate person emerge is a reminder that she’s as much a main character as Joey. This is particularly aided with the authors use of her perspective throughout the book—so cool!!!

Having dived these caves makes the read a bit of a trip through my memories and makes me want to see and dive more!

Into the Darkness Beyond will get your heart racing as you read about the new adventures of Joey and Lindsey in the underwater caves of the Florida panhandle!

Joey Simmons doesn’t always make the best decision, even after getting certified as a cave diver. He’s found himself in another situation, this time more than 2000 feet from the cave opening, and it almost cost him his life. He was able to get himself out of it. Only this time, someone else took credit for rescuing Joey. Not only that, but this person exaggerated the details of the rescue and made Joey look bad, very bad. Now Joey needs to figure out a way to redeem himself and repair his reputation.

Joey enlists the help of his girlfriend, Lindsey Carter, as well as two new friends, and they try to figure out what to do. But the situation gets worse and Lindsey gets caught in the middle.

How will Joey and Lindsey be able to make things right?
