Overview

Marsha and Danny Jones, both retired law officers, go on a cruise and end up working for Black & Perkins as they start new careers providing security for the Seven Seas Company and their fleet of cruise ships. One threat after another is faced all over the Caribbean as this husband and wife team take them all on and win more than they lose.
Cruises can be a little boring after one or two but for the passengers on board the Sea Empress each day can be an explosive adventure as the President's brother becomes a special guest as well as the top entertainer.
Will terrorists cause the cruise line to go broke or will threats from below the sea, on the surface and from the air be met with skill as well as deadly force?

The plot and writing of this book is good. Due to the awkward phrasing, there were times when I felt as if this was written by a person who spoke English as a second language. This book could have used a proofreader as well as an editor.

"The Privateer Clause" is a gripping murder mystery/thriller that takes place on the Sea Empress, a cruise ship. Marsha and Danny Jones are retired law enforcement officers who have been hired as security consultants for a cruise ship company. This responsibility takes them head-to-head with a group of unsavory individuals looking to wreak havoc on the ship. If I were to describe this book in one word, it'd be FUN! There's a ton of action, some humor, and plenty of suspense to keep you wondering what happens next. The story reminds me a bit of the Hart to Hart TV detective show. The cruise ship setting adds an interesting aspect to the story, and the author has done enough research on the setting to make it reasonable. If you're looking for a fun story filled with action, this book is worth checking out!

This book is wonderfully unique and adventurous in its story line. Taking place on a cruise ship, Marsha and Danny are hired by the cruise line to provide security. But troubles they face aren't merely rowdy passengers; the cruise is a magnet for pirates and terrorists alike, throwing the two ex-secret service agents. I found the vivid descriptions and knowledge about the ports of call and cruise ship procedures fascinating and added a great layer of depth to the story. The action was intense, and the two main characters did some serious damage to the pirates and terrorists. The president even gets involved, which just shows how serious the plot becomes. This is a great maritime detective/thriller/action novel.

Well-paced and loaded with interesting characters, Rossignol has put together one really fantastic piece of fiction here. Not only is the scenery beautifully described, but the author does a fantastic job of using vivid imagery. I loved the action and mystery paced throughout the plot and the twists and turns on every page. I wasn't that familiar with Rossignol's work before I started this, but I will definitely read more of his stuff soon!

"Cruising has never been so dangerous. Join Marsha and Danny Jones, both retired law officers, as they go on their first cruise and end up working for Black & Perkins providing security for the Seven Seas Company and their fleet of cruise ships. One threat after another is faced all over the Caribbean as this husband and wife team take them all on and win more than they lose." Yes,-Cruising has never been so dangerous- in the superb new thriller, The Privateer Clause, by Ken Rossignol, but in the hands of so very talented a writer as Mr. Rossignol, Cruising has never been so thrilling, so very intriqing and so very expertly used as a plot device. Mr. Rossignol is a master at the art of character and dialogue - as The Privateer Clause is populated by a whole array of of characters, each personality so very well defined by their give and take with each other. The action truly pops from the pages, as Marsha and Danny Jones, the novel's main protagonists become involved in one twist after another. The book never slows down, and yet the pace is an ideal fit for the plot, a true credit to Mr. Rossignol, as the reader is able to gain a personal perspective on each character amid all the action, no small feat. There is almost an Agatha Christie aspect to this fine thriller, in that the cast of characters are so diverse, each have their own "Baggage" (Pun..yes!!), from nefarious businessmen, various law enforcement agents, pirates and even a Rabbi and his wife, The Privateer Clause provides everything a reader hopes for in a thriller- plently of twists, distinct characters and most important, an overall story that takes the reader along on a cruise they will not soon forget!
