Overview

Jorge Cordoba has schemed and murdered his way to the top of a Colombian drug cartel intent on bankrupting the industrialized nations of the world. But when the freighter delivering the goods that will secure the cartel’s—and Cordoba’s—future goes missing, he’s thrown into a life or death struggle to recover it.

Enter Navy Lieutenant Daniel Blake, a former merchant marine officer who’s just been ordered to lead a boarding party of seven men and one woman onto an abandoned freighter. In the hull of the freighter are 30 tons of cocaine, 350 million dollars in cash—and half a dozen corpses with their tongues cut out.

Cut off from his own ship with a typhoon rapidly approaching, Blake and his team are plunged into a battle of terror against not one, but two treacherous enemies—Cordoba’s strike force racing to the scene and a savage murderer who is still aboard.

At the heart of this electrifying novel are two very different men, separated by their morality and strict code of honor—bound together in a deadly game of power and survival that each must fight to the very end.

Editorial Reviews

Charles Champlin
. . . engrossing credibility . . . tautly thrilling . . . a first-rate job of exciting and suspenseful story-telling.
Ed Thomas
One of the best first novels I have ever read. . . . an incredibly exciting and suspenseful book. Highly recommended!
Chub's Choice
It is such a pleasure to discover a new author who has the ability to write a story that comes "alive" in the first few pages, and continues that way throughout. Medland did this for me in Point of Honor -- a real page turner. This book I found difficult to put down. [It is] one hell of a story. Thank you, Maurice Medland.

    Maurice Medland¿s first book, and what a first book. A sea story with lots of twists. South American drug lords, a silent killer loose on a wounded ship sailing into a cyclone, intrigue, romance, and some extraordinary seamanship. A book that is hard to put down until the last page has been read.
