"One of the best adventure writers today. A master storyteller."
- Clive Cussler

The secrecy of a mysterious aerospace laboratory in Hong Kong . . . A daring break from a heavily guarded Chinese prison camp . . . A fierce drama played out on the storm-tossed Pacific Ocean - and in the depths below - where the fate of the world is in the hands of a brave young American couple . . .

When Elizabeth Grayson, the half-Chinese daughter of a U.S. senator, discovers she has unwittingly contributed to a terrible new weapons system while doing medical research in China, she's thrown into a notorious forced labor camp to keep her quiet. Enter Matt Connor, a disgraced ex-submarine officer operating a tramp ocean-salvage ship out of Taiwan, who is hired by her wealthy father to get her out. At the heart of this electrifying novel are a strong-willed pacifist and her reluctant rescuer, two people from vastly different worlds who become bound together in a desperate game of survival, pitted against deadly forces that must be stopped at any cost - even their own lives.

This was a great book that hit me on the .edge. Of my seat. The characters were wonderful and still have lots of hard edges. The plot twists kept me me on my toes without being predictable. I highly recommend this book.

It is always a pleasure to read a well written, fast paced, adventure story that does not defy the laws of physics, chemistry and logic. Medland writes serious adventure fiction, not adventure fantasy. The story turns on a high energy laser weapon developed by the Chinese Believable seamanship, and well described naval tactics makes his story come alive. The characters are well drawn, and the story grabs you on the first page and keeps you turning the pages to the end. His descriptions of Chinese locations are very well done. I have been to some of them, however. I didn¿t stay in a laogai. I don¿t need to loose weight¿my wife doesn¿t agree¿however, laogais appear to be very effective ¿fat farms.¿ I understand no reservations are required. I hope the protagonist, Mat Connor, will enthrall us with more adventures. I plan to read Medland¿s first novel, Point of Honor.
