A Deadly Silver SeaBook
Celebrating the imminent birth of their first child, Zack Chasteen and his wife, Barbara, join the inaugural cruise of the Royal Star, the world's most exclusive and luxurious liner, but their dream vacation is threatened when armed gunmen seize the ship as part of a deadly conspiracy plot. Reprint.
The world’s most exclusive cruise ship, The Royal Star, has just set sail from Miami on its inaugural voyage. For the hundred or so well-heeled passengers, including Zack Chasteen and his wife, the itinerary is a secret and the week ahead promises to be the ultimate tropical sojourn…
But just an hour out of port, gunmen take over the Royal Star, killing most of the officers and sequestering passengers throughout the ship. Not only is Zack separated from his wife, he has another worry: She is eight months pregnant, and could go into labor at any moment…
As Zack and his fellow captives struggle to get an upper hand, the hijackers offer few clues to their motives. Maybe it’s a simple kidnap/extortion plot. Or maybe they’re bent on more devious ends—using the Royal Star as a giant torpedo to blow up another cruise ship. Either way, Zack must figure out a way to stop them—while keeping himself, and his family, alive.
Zack Chasteen and his eight-months pregnant wife, Barbara, join the inaugural cruise of the Royal Star, the world's most exclusive and luxurious liner, but their dream vacation is threatened when armed gunmen seize the ship.
