Ian Connors, a young professional with a desire to succeed in the business world, sets off on a vacation to fulfill his childhood dream- to dive the cliffs of Acapulco. A trained diver, Ian knows the risks, but little does he know that the most dangerous part of his trip won’t be the Dive.Led by Manny Arroyo, a smiling twelve year old tour guide with a heart of gold, Ian and his friend Spook take in the beauty of Acapulco Bay and its surroundings, including sexy Robyn Baldwin and her girlfriends. But ever-present behind the beauty lurks the ugly reality of greed, and a cast of devious characters who will do anything necessary to get what they want.In the world of competition diving every dive has an assigned Degree of Difficulty. Standing eighty five feet above the churning waters of the canyon at La Quebrada and the corrupt world he’s stumbled into, Ian must make the most difficult decision of his life- step to the edge and make a leap of faith, or run away.Set in Acapulco in the seventies, a hot spot for the rich and famous, Degree of Difficulty sweeps the reader along like a Hitchcock movie, from the downtown canyons of Philadelphia to the blue water canyon of La Quebrada, twisting and turning like the treacherous mountain roads of Mexico.
