Overview

"Where there is a ship, there are pirates." —Greek Proverb

"They should have picked a different ship." —Thomas Prescott

Intimate in scale, but grandly outfitted, the luxury cruise liner 'The Afrikaans' hosts no more than 208 pampered guests, among them; former FBI contract agent Thomas Prescott. When the ship is overtaken by African pirates who are demanding the U.S. send AIDS relief to a small Zulu village in South Africa, it is up to Prescott to keep the 400 hostages alive. As the U.S. tries to figure out how to combat the terrorists’ plot from the outside, World Health Organization doctor Gina Brady, undertakes the impossible task of rescuing three children from the secluded village. As the deadline draws near, Prescott and Brady must race against the clock to discover the truth; is it AIDS relief the pirates seek or a two billion dollar ransom from one of the richest men in the world. Or could the implications be so profound, and the stakes so high, a war hangs in the balance. Taut, riveting, with a plot snatched from the headlines of tomorrow, The Afrikaans will leave you begging for more.

    I'm such a huge fan of this author, and this latest book is so i

    I'm such a huge fan of this author, and this latest book is so incredible! The main character is Thomas Prescott, and he is also featured in Nick Pirogs' books 'Unforessen" (Book 1) and Gray Mater (book 2). This is the third book in the series, but you don't have to read in order to understand.
    Thomas takes a cruise with his sister and the ship is overtaken by pirates. THomas is a former homicide detective and FBI consultant. It's up to him to save the ship. He's sarcastic, handsome, extremely funny and clever. I can't get enough of him! So suspenseful until the last page. You will not be disappointed. There's also a dog in the book named Baxter, and he's hysterical.

    A total page turner!

    I loved this book. The author captured my attention on the first page and kept it for the next 700 or so pages; couldn't put it down.
