Aiden Page's second life began on America's worst day . . .
The most horrific terrorist attack in history enabled him to walk away from his failing business, his crumbling marriage, and an impending Justice Department investigation—and to start over in a South Pacific paradise. But in a moment of weakness, a one-word phone call to his teenage daughter Morgan causes ever-widening ripples in once-placid waters.
Morgan now knows her father is alive and will stop at nothing to find him, embarking on a harrowing solo ocean voyage that will place her at the mercy of hostile seas and even more dangerous men. The hungry wolves hunting for Aiden Page have picked up the scent again, and if the death of a courageous young girl is the price for finding him, so be it. Because suddenly there's much more at stake than silencing a fugitive—and thousands of lives will depend on the action of a dead man.

PAUL GARRISON is the pen name of JUSTIN SCOTT. Together they have written more than thirty thrillers, mysteries, and sea stories. PAUL GARRISON writes modern sea stories (Fire and Ice, Red Sky at Morning, Buried at Sea, Sea Hunter and The Ripple Effect) and a thriller series based on a Robert Ludlum character (The Janson Command and The Janson Option.)
JUSTIN SCOTT's novels include The Shipkiller, The Normandie, and A Pride of Royals; and the Ben Abbott detective mysteries set in small-town Newbury, Connecticut (HardScape, StoneDust, FrostLine, McMansion, and Mausoleum.) SCOTT collaborates on the Isaac Bell detective adventure series with Clive Cussler (The Wrecker, The Spy, The Race, The Thief,
The Striker, and The Bootlegger.) He has been twice nominated for the Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America. He is a member of the Authors league, The Players, and the
Adams Round Table. He is married to filmmaker Amber Edwards. They live in Connecticut.
Those thinking of abandoning their everyday lives and starting over again on a secret tropical island will find Garrison's latest an invaluable and entertaining instruction manual. The author's earlier books (Sea Hunter; Fire and Ice; Buried at Sea) have shown him a master storyteller/sailor, and this gale force novel of high seas suspense reinforces that judgment. In 2001, the Page brothers, Aiden and Charlie, are in their World Trade Center office plotting a way to prop up the failing investment banking business they helm and at the same time respond to a threatening letter from the Department of Justice. Suddenly, a passenger jet slams into the building, and the fiery aftermath presents a possible solution. In the heavy smoke the brothers become separated, but each escapes the building and disappears. Months later, Aiden's 15-year-old daughter, Morgan, is mourning the loss of her father and Uncle Charlie in the Trade Center disaster when she receives a three-second silent phone call that she insists is from her father. No one believes her, so she runs away and makes a 6,000-mile journey in a 27-foot sailboat to search for him. The brothers, each unaware that the other is alive, flee independently to Blind Man Island, the South Sea hideaway of their boss, the secretive Henry Ho Hong-even though Henry may have been the man who turned them in to the Justice Department. The brothers' journey is fast-paced and exciting, but spunky Morgan's heroic solo sail is the real nail-biter. There are boatloads of action, and Garrison comes up with a real rarity-a plausible, entirely original superweapon. The lives of 50 million Americans hang in the balance. Sailors and landlubbers alike will be up all night with this one.
