Falling Darkness by Karen Harper. Published by Mira

Forensic psychologist Claire Britten, her ex-husband, daughter, and lover have been in a horrific plane crash, and together with a handful of survivors, they are adrift in the ocean in two tiny life rafts. Claire is filled with worry that they might never be rescued and guilt, because the reason they were all aboard the same flight was because they were fleeing from the underworld criminal in pursuit of her lover Nick Markwood, and anyone he loves. Even when they are safely back on land, the plan for them to assume their new identities under Witness Protection goes awry and Nick and Claire are left with no one to trust but themselves. Karen Harper puts as much effort into developing her characters as she does building the suspense.
