After only a few idealic days in a remote cove on Nuka Hiva Island, they are attacked by a man and woman with a machine pistol from another boat. Wounded and bleading they hide under their skiff which is riddled with bullet holes, while the pirates make off with the Sterling's 90 foot yacht. Stranded and pennyless in a foreign country John and Susan set out on a valient but naive and dangerous attempt to recover their stolen yacht.

Wow! What can I say about this great novel by Patrick Cotten. These two famous people who love each other deeply, end up victims of pirates in French Polynesia when their beautiful yacht and their identities are taken, and they are left for dead. Even the Sterlings did not realize how much danger they were in from the drug lords. You will love, laugh, and wish you could be there to help them in this GREAT adventure story of love and redemption. You will be begging this writer for his next novel!!
