Overview

How many lives will you sacrifice to save the one you love?

Drug baron Janac has turned to piracy to fund his battle for control of the Australian narcotics trade. When he attacks the MV Shawould on an evil night in the South China Sea, it seems he has also found the perfect victim for his psychotic games.

Phil Hamnet and his wife Anna are sharing a last voyage on the Shawould before the arrival of their twins. Hamnet escapes Janac's attack, but Anna is taken and held hostage to ensure first his silence and then his cooperation. But when Janac's rogue ex-Special Forces crew attack more ships and men start dying, Hamnet has to decide if he can continue to sacrifice the lives of unknown sailors to save the woman he loves.

It's an awful decision for anyone to have to make, but for a man who's already had the same dilemma - in a lifeboat, adrift in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean - it's a living nightmare.

Janac's first appearance was in the suspense thriller The Defector - a #1 Thriller on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de.

This is what people said about the HarperCollins paperback edition:

A real ripping yarn... begging to be made into an all-action film.'
Qantas in-flight magazine

It's a great escapist yarn with Janac a really nasty villain who gives Hamnet untold grief. I enjoyed this one.'
Hawkes Bay Today

'I found it impossible to put down.'

Meet the Author

Mark Chisnell writes the kind of stories that keep you turning the pages on holiday, and still thinking about them when you get back to work ...

The books include the chart-topping thrillers, The Defector, The Wrecking Crew and The Fulcrum Files - as well as award-winning works of non-fiction.

He's a former professional sportsman, and now also works as a broadcaster and journalist, writing for some of the world's leading magazines and newspapers, including Esquire and the Guardian.

Probably his greatest achievement was hitch-hiking to Mt Everest base-camp in Tibet. In training shoes. Or maybe that was the stupidest.

    Exciting from the getgo!

    Piracy on the high seas leads to an action packed novel. Once you start reading, you cna't put the nook down.

    This was an action packed bitter-sweet story. I could not put it

    This was an action packed bitter-sweet story. I could not put it down until the end.
    There was some profanity and graphic slaughter. I would not recommend it to YA.
    I was disappointed on the ending. It was weak and left one wondering - "What happened next?"
    I understand there are other sequels but the sneak peak of the next sequel is not going to answer that question.
