Nominated for the 2005 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Crime Book



Fifteen-year-old Brodie and his father are sailing aboard their small yacht in the Caribbean, just off Colombia, when his father is lost overboard in the middle of the night. By the time Brodie discovers what has happened, he realizes he is all alone. If his father is to survive, Brodie must find him.

He soon learns that his father is being held captive by kidnappers who believe him to be a rich businessman, instead of the poor single dad he is. The suspenseful, fast-paced story of Brodie’s quest will take him and readers into the dark world of Colombian drug traffickers, guerillas, and paramilitaries set against jungle, mountain, and sea. Brodie’s wild adventure grips the reader from the first moment to the satisfying conclusion.
