I've finished "The Unspoken" the 3rd book in her Texas Krewe series by Heather Graham.

Product Description

1898: Bound for Chicago, the freighter Jerry McGuen goes down in Lake Michigan, taking with it every man aboard. But what other fate could befall a vessel carrying the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer?

Now: A veteran diver and "ghost ship" expert is exploring the legendary wreck for a documentary. He dies inexplicably inside the freighter's main saloon. Then another diver is killed and panicked rumors rise like bubbles from the lake: ancient demons have awakened below!

The expedition's beleaguered financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to save the film — and perhaps some innocent lives.

My Review:

In 1898 The Jerry McGuen sinks to the bottom of  Lake Michigan taking with it the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer and everyone on board.

When a lone diver mysteriously dies doing a documentary on the Jerry McGuen on a solo dive before his crew arrives medical examiner and paranormal investigator for the Texas Krewe of Hunters Katya Sokolov is assigned to investigate.   Her partner is FBI and former magician Will Chan of the original Krewe of Hunters.  The ship was carrying the sarcophagus of Amon Mopat the evil sorcerer during Ramses II era.

I really enjoyed the interplay between Kat and Will because they are the total opposites of each other (she's more subtle while he's more in your face during interrogations) and it seems like they are always arguing and not having a civil conversations.  I thought it was quite funny and it was very sizzling by the time they finally did the deed.
