Publisher's Summary

Matt "Loose Cannon" Shannon is an ex-FBI agent turned security chief for the world's largest cruise line. It's a career move that owes more to personal weaknesses than his fondness for the Miami sun.

In the novel's explosive opening, Shannon's stepbrother, Jack Fontana, puts his back against the wall. At a waterfront reunion, Fontana gives Shannon what looks like a game controller, and before he knows what he's done, Shannon has sunk a freighter in Miami's shipping lane and his fingerprints are all over the device that sent the signal. Only once he's cornered does Shannon learn his stepbrother's real plan, a cruise ship job that could make enough money to last their lifetimes. Shannon thinks he's only providing backup and intelligence. And by the time he learns what's really going on, he's in too deep: the cruise ship has been hijacked and several people are already dead.

Fever is the story of Shannon's race to unravel the deadly labyrinth that's grown up around him. With the help of a mysterious woman and his own instincts, he might find the one path that could allow him to survive.

What the Critics Say

  • 2005 Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award, Mystery/Thriller

"Dufris, an award-winning narrator with more than 200 audiobooks to his credit, transforms much of this unabridged production of Rowe's striking debut fiction into riveting sequences that come close to simulating a full-cast recording." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Mediocre"

    After having tortured myself by sticking with this book to the inept end, I am writing to spare the unsuspecting. The premise sounded intriguing, but the actual plot, and I use the term very loosely here, was dull, had poor focus and little substance. The ending read like the author suddenly tired of writing the book and just abruptly finished it off. Instead of a mastermind, Mission impossible like plan that would actually be needed to take a major cruise liner, especially after the Achille Lauro, this book describes essentially a walk onto the ship that you'd have to be brain dead to believe. Fast paced? Unh,unh. Thriller? I don't think so. Put this on your 'avoid' list.

    "Poorly formed"

    I found this book extremely difficult to get through. The characters were very poorly formed or developed and the plot was outlandsih.

    "When's the movie?"

    First of all, the narration is excellent. I am looking forward to searching out other titles read by this actor. The plot is interesting, has a couple of good twists, but there's a little too much of it for a book of this length. The main characters are intriguing. Some of the secondary characters are two dimensional. I'm guessing this is an author who enjoys going to movies. I'd rather see this on the screen than save the book on my shelf.
