‘Nelson DeMille is a true master’
Dan Brown

Strap in for the ride of a lifetime with the blistering new novel from America’s greatest living thriller writer, Nelson DeMille.

Daniel ‘Mac’ MacCormick has a good life. Aged thirty-five and a decorated US Army veteran, he whiles away his life in stunning Key West, Florida, running a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat The Maine. A ladies’ man and rule-breaker, Mac has it all – apart from the money to hold on to his beloved boat.

Then Mac is approached by a hotshot Miami lawyer called Carlos with an apparently irresistible offer: a fee of $2 million to run the boat into Havana and smuggle out $60 million from a stash hidden from the Castro government – cash once owned by the family of a beautiful Cuban-American woman named Sara Ortega.

With the political ‘Cuban Thaw’ underway, it’s only a matter of time before someone finds the stash. But Mac knows if he accepts this job, he’ll walk away rich…or not at all.

Punchy, witty and rammed with action, legendary international #1 bestseller Nelson DeMille once more shows he’s a true master of the genre.
