From Barnes & NobleOnce, A. J. and Darlene Braswell had it all -- fortune, three beautiful children, power, bright futures. But then their golden son, Andy, was killed in a grotesque battle with a giant blue marlin, and in the ten years since his death, the Braswell family has crumbled -- Darlene ultimately giving in to suicidal depression, the family business nearly in ruins.
But Morgan and Johnny Braswell are not about to let their father's obsession with the great fish that devastated their family ruin their lives any longer. They've got a plan. And after years of stealing ideas from the notebooks that Andy left behind, they've got a secret weapon that could restore MicroDyne's greatness -- or destroy it. Of less consequence are the people they'll have to kill to bring their plan to fruition, and murdering a nosy reporter is just a petty nuisance to be handled along the way. But when they kidnap Lawton Collins, a befuddled ex-cop who they believe has stolen the weapon from them, they attract the attention of a stranger whose name may be a mystery, but whose intentions are crystal clear.
Yes, Thorn is back, driven by his own personal demons into a bizarre conspiracy of greed and immorality that will take him far from the calm waters of Blackwater Sound. And in the churning blue seas off Abaco Cay, a haunted man will come face to face with the evil his own obsession has spawned; a pair of killers will unleash their wrath, leaving a deadly trail of de- struction in their wake; and Thorn will finally find salvation as he joins forces with Alexandra Rafferty, the unforgettable heroine of Body Language, in his greatest hour of fear and need….
"Thorn had learned…there was no defense against people like the Braswells, only offense. Your own set of…claws and a vengeful thirst for blood."
