From the legendary #1 New York Times bestselling author of Plum Island and Night Fall, Nelson DeMilleâs blistering new novel features an exciting new characterâU.S. Army combat veteran Daniel âMacâ MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise.
Daniel Graham MacCormickâMac for shortâseems to have a pretty good life. At age thirty-five heâs living in Key West, owner of a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat, The Maine. Mac served five years in the Army as an infantry officer with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that donât tan, and a boat with a big bank loan. Truth be told, Macâs finances are more than a little shaky.
One day, Mac is sitting in the famous Green Parrot Bar in Key West, contemplating his life, and waiting for Carlos, a hotshot Miami lawyer heavily involved with anti-Castro groups. Carlos wants to hire Mac and The Maine for a ten-day fishing tournament to Cuba at the standard rate, but Mac suspects there is more to this and turns it down. The price then goes up to two million dollars, and Mac agrees to hear the deal, and meet Carlosâs clientsâa beautiful Cuban-American woman named Sara Ortega, and a mysterious older Cuban exile, Eduardo Valazquez.
What Mac learns is that there is sixty million American dollars hidden in Cuba by Saraâs grandfather when he fled Castroâs revolution. With the âCuban Thawâ underway between Havana and Washington, Carlos, Eduardo, and Sara know itâs only a matter of time before someone finds the stashâby accident or on purpose. And Mac knows if he accepts this job, heâll walk away richâ¦or not at all.
Brilliantly written, with his signature humor, fascinating authenticity from his research trip to Cuba, and heart-pounding pace, Nelson DeMille is a true master of the genre.
