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.

    "DeMille"

    Couldn’t even get halfway through. Narration was amateurish and annoying. Sorely disappointed as I so enjoyed his other books. How do give less than 1 star?

    "Not DeMille's best, but well worth the listen"

    Always enjoy DeMille's books, plots, characters, and dialogue (both internal and external). Unlike previous books, he repeats himself a lot in this one; it could have been a little shorter and tighter. Still very entertaining.

    "I didn't finish this book"

    Great performance and the story was so realistic that I couldn't finish listing to it. I found myself getting depressed by the complete hopelessness of the Cuban people. I will finish the book, but at a later time.

    "A great read"

    This book is one of the best I've listened to in a while. Nelson DeMille is a great story teller. He writes with a certain sense of dry humor that I really like. It had twists at every turn and was very suspenseful. You really felt like you were in Cuba.
    The narrator is excellent. His voice characterizations are spot on.

    "Not so good"

    Monotonous tone by the reader. I swear at chapter 35 or so a new reader was reading. The story was pretty slow paced and boring. I am not a fan of this book. I wish I could get a refund.

    "A big zero"

    Absolutely nothing to the book. No story no point. Hours of filler. DeMilles worst. Did he even write it ?

    "Another DeMille story unfolds wonderful characters and plot."

    I hope that we hear again from “Mac” ... although I have perhaps loved other DeMille stories more, I thought back to my first John Cory and realized that our love for that character grew exponentially with each new story. Looking forward to growing with Mac also.

    "Not up to DeMille's standards"

    Another main-character wise-guy; gratuitous f-bombs, and very poor editing. The book is almost 15 hours long, and it should have been about half that.

    "This is NOT a Nelson book."

    Terrible story. Stupid plot. Horrible characters. The whole thing was so unbelievable I wonder if it was ghost written. Save yourself and do NOT listen to this one.

    "cliche "

    Not one of DeMille's best. Way too many cliches... and if I heard "they clinked" one more time I would have screamed. The cheesy "those bastards!" lines from Sara were almost comical. perhaps a "here's looking at you, kid " might have saved it.... oh wait, that was in there. ouch
