Four deaths occurred due to the storm, of which one was indirectly related to the hurricane. The hurricane later made a devastating landfall in southern Florida, and after striking southern Louisiana it dissipated over the eastern United States. It caused $250 million in damage, with damage heaviest on Eleuthera and Cat Cay. The effects of Hurricane Andrew in the Bahamas included three direct fatalities and $250 million in damage. Andrew was the first major hurricane to affect the nation since Hurricane Betsy in 1965. Forming from a tropical wave on August 16, Andrew remained weak until rapidly intensifying on August 22, and late on August 23 it made its first landfall in The Bahamas on Eleuthera as a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 260 km/h; early the next day Hurricane Andrew passed through the southern Berry Islands with winds of 240 km/h.

On that same day, a suspicious hit-and-run accident leaves a young man dead in Karen' s hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut. Ty Hauck, a detective, becomes emotionally caught up in the case and finds a clue that shockingly connects the two seemingly unrelated events. Months later, two men show up at Karen' s home digging into Charles' s business dealings. Hundreds of millions of dollars are missing - and the trail points squarely to Charles. With doubt suddenly cast on everything she has ever known, Karen, with Hauck, steps into a widening storm of hedge fund losses, international scams, and murder. And as the investigations converge, these two strangers touched by tragedy are pulled into a deepening relationship and unwittingly open the door to a twisted - and deadly - conspiracy. With its breakneck pacing, plentiful twists, compelling characters, and abundant heart, The Dark Tide confirms Andrew Gross' s place as a master storyteller at the top of his game.
