Daniel and Vanessa Parker are an American success story. He is a Washington, DC power broker, and she is a doctor with a thriving practice. But behind the facade, their marriage is a shambles, and their teenage son, Quentin, is self-destructing. In desperation, Daniel dusts off a long-delayed dream - a sailing trip around the world. Little does he know that the voyage he hopes will save them may destroy them instead.
Half a world away, on the lawless coast of Somalia, Ismail Ibrahim is plotting the rescue of his sister, Yasmin, from the man who murdered their father. Driven to crime by love and loyalty, he hijacks ships for ransom money. There is nothing he will not do to save her, even if it means taking innocent life.
Paul Derrick is the FBI's top hostage negotiator. His twin sister, Megan, is a celebrated defense attorney. When Paul is called to respond to a hostage crisis at sea, he has no idea how far it will take them both into their traumatic past - or the chance it will give them to redeem the future.
Across continents and oceans, through storms and civil wars, their paths converge in a single, explosive moment. It is a moment that will test them and break them but that will also leave behind a glimmer of hope - that out of the ashes of tragedy the seeds of justice and reconciliation can grow, not only for themselves but also for Somalia itself.

Corban is obviously a natural story teller and the detail and content he puts into his international thrillers makes them so hard to put down. From his characters to the environment, politics and geography you feel embedded in the story. what is hard about finishing this book is waiting for the next one! Thank you Corban for another great experience in the same tradition of "a walk across the sun" and "garden of burning sand" - Master Dean Siminoff
Did a great job of character development. You got to see all sides of the story. The conclusion was guessable and maybe tired up too nearly, bit still a lot of fun.
