'A gloriously pulpy, no-nonsense adventure...Ledwidge knows how to keep readers' adrenaline pumping.'
When a private jet crashes into the Caribbean sea, diving instructor Michael Gannon is the only person on the scene. Finding six dead men and a suitcase full of cash and diamonds, Gannon assumes he's the beneficiary of a drug deal gone wrong.
However, it seems one of the passengers was the Director of the FBI - despite the official story that he died of natural causes in Italy. Suddenly pursued by a shadowy cabal of the world's most powerful and dangerous men, Gannon will only survive if he unravels a terrifying conspiracy.
But those determined to kill him will learn that Gannon's past holds its own deadly secrets...and the hunters soon become the prey.

Diving instructor Michael Gannon, the hero of this contrived thriller from bestseller Ledwidge (the Michael Bennett series with James Patterson), is fishing off an island in the Bahamas when he sees a corporate jet crash into the water. Gannon discovers a fortune in uncut diamonds and American dollars in the downed plane, along with the bodies of six men. Unable to report the tragedy because of a broken antenna, Gannon decides to hold onto the loot, which he guesses is related to a drug deal. Eventually, it becomes clear that among the victims were some highly important people and a cover-up is involved. Gannon ends up partnering with an attractive U.S. Navy lieutenant, Ruby Everett, who investigates the crash, and a journalist, Eric Wheldon, who lost his State Department job after exposing government corruption. Gannon and his allies must dodge multiple perils en route to a predictable conclusion. Action sequences, rather than characterizations, are Ledwidge's strength. Fans of unsophisticated page-turners will be entertained.
