In the midnight darkness north of New Orleans, the towboat's routine trip up the Mississippi River becomes something far more deadly. Captain Charlie Graff is suddenly thrust into the middle of one of the most twisted domestic terrorist plots ever conceived. He has to use his skill as captain to protect his crew, his boat, his river, and his country. But he is not alone.
On land, already overwhelmed FBI agent Emily Graham finds herself thrust into the role of leading the pursuit of the terrorists. Her journey leads to dead ends and dead witnesses. She discovers her trust in her team-members is wrong, the terrorists are not who they say they are, and that the people who actually initiated the attack don't even exist.
This tense, fast-paced thriller is a thousand mile journey with more twists and turns than the river that carries it. A story that begins and ends with betrayal. Betrayal that has but one goal: disruption.
This was an interesting twist on a "terror" plot and the river tow boat added color. Characters were believable but some of the dialog was mundane and the climax was a bit of a let down. However, my biggest complaint was that the author did not put any life into the story or the characters. He seemed to simply be reading his book.
