A gifted private investigator, a billionaire cruise line operator and a group of alleged terrorists cross paths in a contemporary political novel based on actual events.

When bodies mysteriously appear aboard his client’s cruise ships, the CIA and FBI want answers. Marc, whose loyalty runs as deep as the seas beneath his client’s mega ships, engages in a relentless struggle to shield the blameless client and his shipmates from intervention and arrest by government agents.
