How many lives will you sacrifice to save the one you love? Drug baron Janac has turned to piracy to fund his battle for control of the Australian narcotics trade. When he attacks the MV Shawould on an evil night in the South China Sea, it seems he has also found the perfect victim for his psychotic games. Phil Hamnet and his wife Anna are sharing a last voyage on the Shawould before the arrival of their twins. Hamnet escapes Janac's attack, but Anna is taken and held hostage to ensure first his silence and then his cooperation. But when Janac's rogue ex-Special Forces crew attack more ships and men start dying, Hamnet has to decide if he can continue to sacrifice the lives of unknown sailors to save the woman he loves. It's an awful decision for anyone to have to make, but for a man who's already had the same dilemma - in a lifeboat, adrift in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean - it's a living nightmare. Janac's first appearance was in the suspense thriller The Defector - a #1 Thriller on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de. This is what people said about the HarperCollins paperback edition: A real ripping yarn... begging to be made into an all-action film.' Qantas in-flight magazine It's a great escapist yarn with Janac a really nasty villain who gives Hamnet untold grief. I enjoyed this one.' Hawkes Bay Today 'I found it impossible to put down.' Boating New Zealand.
