Sentro - Book 1

"Pyne keeps expertly mixing up his pitches long after you've stopped expecting anything but blazing fastballs."

Kirkus Reviews

“Deceptively explosive, Water Memory pairs the cleverness and precision timing of Daniel Pyne’s riveting storytelling with his addictive, action-packed plotting and unforgettably vivid cast of characters.”

Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Widow

"A mysterious woman on a mysterious path; danger in the future and from the past — Water Memory holds a hypnotic grip on you from the very first page. This is Dan Pyne at his best."

Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Warning and The Night Fire

“Water Memory blew me away. The rare character-driven, adrenaline-charged action thriller readers crave and writers dare to emulate. Aubrey Sentro is an iconic, kick-ass heroine – deeply flawed, exceptionally skilled and exceedingly motivated. Lara Craft on steroids. A brilliant page turner.”

Robert Dugoni, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of A Cold Trail

“Water Memory moves like Die Hard but with a tragic family backstory as its heart—and with an indelible, three-dimensional action heroine, Aubrey Sentro, as the muscle and sinew. I loved it.”

Barry Eisler, New York Times bestselling author of The Killer Collective

“Mother knows best, even when her memory is short-circuiting. Water Memory has everything you want in a modern-day thriller: pirates, propulsive action, and an unforgettable female lead. Pyne’s prose is elegant, evocative, extraordinary. Best book I’ve read in ages. Addictive.”

K. J. Howe, international bestselling author of Skyjack

“A flash bang actioner limned in rich, organic prose. A classy read.”


“A deftly crafted and simply riveting read, Water Memory effectively showcases author Daniel Pyne's impressively entertaining narrative storytelling style as a novelist.”

 – Midwest Book Review

“Water Memory is a speedboat on steroids and Pyne’s use of the present tense and blind narrative turns fuels the propulsion. Tackle this one while you’re wide awake, hang tight until the end and wait for Vital Signs, book two in the Sentro series, due out a year from now.”

—Mountain Times

“ There’s a lot to like in Daniel Pyne’s Water Memory, most notably a refreshing, pulse-pounding structure that narrows the landscape even as it expands the playing field.”

Jon Land –- The Providence Journal

Sentro - Book 2 coming soon

"In [his] outstanding sequel to 2021’s Water Memory……. Pyne keeps the pages racing by. This gripping cinematic thriller will leave readers transfixed.”
