Turmoil grips the Caribbean island nation of Grenada as its people await national elections. There is mischief underway. Four nations compete to change the voting outcome in their favor, away from democracy and toward regional domination. What hidden forces are at work and who is behind them? Journalist and secret agent Robert Wilson has only a week to unravel the clues and find out how to avert a soft coup d' tat. He is joined by an aging English Lord named Lightchurch and his alluring Grenadian security guard, Madeline, in a tense search for answers before all hell breaks loose on the island. A secretive Chinese company, a smoldering volcano, a torrential storm, a beautiful Venezuelan spy, a Russian oligarch. And the mysterious Black Freighter. All may be involved. Can Wilson and his ad hoc team untangle the web of intrigue in time? Will disaster be averted?
