The threat of death is all in a typical day for iron-willed Raddisson Steele, captain of the Golden Gryphon. While smuggling some top-secret cargo in Asian waters to Korea, he's stealthily followed by insidious Captain Babineaux, a fearsome Cajun pirate. Unaware of the value of the cargo and the many countries and governments after his ship, Captain Steele plans to dump his load and cash in, avoiding confrontation if possible. Meanwhile, among his own slimy crew, Captain Steele's got some strange passengers aboard: there's Stormy, a battle-hardened Chinese prostitute on her way to Vietnam, Tucker, an undercover CIA agent assigned to track the Golden Gryphon, and the mysterious and powerful cook, Abisha. Will these unlikely passengers spell trouble for Captain Steele? What about Babineaux? Will he make it to Korea and his prize? Find out in Lyle Way's suspenseful thriller, The Wake of the Golden Gryphon.
