Somewhere in the vast and merciless ocean, an obsessed, vengeful madman holds Michael Stone's wife and daughter captive. With the aid of no more than a canoe and the stars, Michael must find and rescue his kidnapped family. He must conquer deadly winter gales and turbulent tides in order to reach the teeming cities of the Far East. Once there, cold-blooded assassins are awaiting - who are they? and how did they know he was coming? Paul Garrison's chilling novel is performed by veteran actor Michael Gross, best known for his work on television's Family Ties.
