Sailer gets mixed up with cocane dealers . ( )
  donagiles | May 22, 2012 |
Summer charter season in the Bahamas is wrapping up and ex-Marine Nick Breakspear is looking forward to repairing his sailboat Masquerade and heading for the tropics with crewmate Ellen, a former college professor. But that's before they're offered big money to take a senator's children on a three-month "graduation" cruise that is not what it seems.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140177256, Paperback)

The dreams of an idle life in the paradise of the Bahamas are shattered when the discovery of a derelict, bullet-ridden yacht brings in the local police and the drug-runners. Nick Breakspear, desperate to escape his famous parentage, invalided out of the Marines, was heading only for peace, but the quixotic impulse makes him take up a challenge - and a lucrative offer - and he allows himself to be hired, for a private war, by a smooth-talking US presidential candidate. And it is the skills drawn from his depised father's world that will enable him to survive.

What should have been a simple de-tox cruise soon lurches into a voyage of terror and death when Breakspear is lured into a horrifying plot of cocaine, cash, and cold-blooded killings. Suddenly, he's racing through the shadowy kingdom of drug lords to save the woman he loves ... one step ahead of his own murder, and one step away from the big crackdown on Murder Cay.… (more)
