Publisher's Summary

INCLUDES AN EXTENDED INTERVIEW WITH NELSON DEMILLE AND SCOTT BRICK!

From the legendary number-one New York Times best-selling author of Plum Island and Night Fall, Nelson DeMille's blistering new novel features an exciting new character - US Army combat veteran Daniel "Mac" MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise.

Daniel Graham MacCormick - Mac for short - seems to have a pretty good life. At age 35 he's living in Key West, owner of a 42-foot charter fishing boat, The Maine. Mac served five years in the army as an infantry officer, with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that don't tan, and a boat with a big bank loan. Truth be told, Mac's finances are more than a little shaky.

One day Mac is sitting in the famous Green Parrot Bar in Key West, contemplating his life and waiting for Carlos, a hotshot Miami lawyer heavily involved with anti-Castro groups. Carlos wants to hire Mac and The Maine for a 10-day fishing tournament to Cuba at the standard rate, but Mac suspects there is more to this and turns it down. The price then goes up to $2 million, and Mac agrees to hear the deal and meet Carlos's clients - a beautiful Cuban American woman named Sara Ortega and a mysterious older Cuban exile, Eduardo Valazquez.

What Mac learns is that there is 60 million American dollars hidden in Cuba by Sara's grandfather when he fled Castro's revolution. With the "Cuban Thaw" underway between Havana and Washington, Carlos, Eduardo, and Sara know it's only a matter of time before someone finds the stash - by accident or on purpose. And Mac knows if he accepts this job, he'll walk away rich...or not at all.

Brilliantly written, with his signature humor, fascinating authenticity from his research trip to Cuba, and heart-pounding pace. Nelson DeMille is a true master of the genre.

Another great DeMille book and Brick performance

All his protagonists have a great unspoken observations and cynical critiques. Mac is no exception. Worth the time, always come away with 2 or 3 great quotes from a DeMille book.

Lackluster

The idea was good but the execution was boring. I kept listening because I had a 10hr drive and didnt want to pull over to select a new book. SO boring and predictable and blaaaaaa. If you need a book to sleep to, this is it.

Great author and narrator

This is a great audible book to listen to. I was on the edge of my seat during the action scene in the last couple of chapters and throughout the whole book! The narrator brought the characters to life with his wonderful voice and I cannot wait to listen to the next one!

SLOW

90% introspection. 10% action. I kept waiting for something. Also, I’m tired of heroes incapable of deep relationships.

Wonderful setting and good plot.

I enjoyed the pace, the settings, and the Cuban context. It was a refreshing change.

I did skip a few chapters as some of it was drawn out. I particularly did not enjoy the main character's attitude to his lover. This character was obnoxious and the sexual comments were particularly offensive.

Fun lsten

Scott Brick is the best narrator today. His soft voice is very easy to listen to. His changes of characters is perfect.

As usual Nelson DE Mille is witty and has created a fun story.

I would like to meet Sara Ortega.

Disappointing

This is the sixth DeMille book I have listened to or read. I loved all of them until this. Most of his books had me hooked quickly but this one did not. This book seemed slow to me. My mind kept wandering as I listened to it so I continually had to replay sections and force myself to pay attention. The end of the book finally had some excitement. This is also the first DeMille book where I just did not find the main characters likable enough to pull for them. I highly recommend Nelson DeMille books. Just not this one.
