"Once again, McDermott has done a super job with his characterizations. The plot could be lifted from the daily news.There is plenty of action and emotions are more realistic and perhaps less noble than the run of the mill stylized protagonist. Another must read from a terrific author."

"The author, a veteran mariner, knows whereof he speaks and writes with authority. The characters are people I'd want coming after me if I were on a hijacked ship! Go get this one, it was great!"

"As we have come to expect from Mr. McDermott, this thriller unwinds at breakneck speed. The author's grasp of the details of ocean-going craft and the vagaries of human nature, rival that of the masterful Tom Clancy. All the characters are highly believable, and one simply must keep reading until the very last page. Unputdownable."
