February 23, 1944, London). "Nick Breakspear, [who...] never wanted anything to do with the brittle theatrical world inhabit ed by his father, [...] joined the Royal Marines; now he is sailing the blue waters of the Bahamas. But dreams of paradise are shattered when Nick's discovery of a derelict yacht riddled with bullets brings him into conflict with the local authorities. Then a lucrative offer to hire his services is dangled in front of him. The sensible thing to do would be to sail away across the Pacific. However, Nick wasn't being sensible when he walked into the Marine recruiting office. he isn't being sensible when a quixotic impulsesweeps him into a small but deadly corner of the war against the drug-runn ers that infest the Bahamas, in the unlikely copmany of a foul-mouthed ex-American football player and a smooth-talking US presidential candidate. Caught up in a world that denies every truth he believes in, the only defence is to draw on the despised skills of his father's world and fight violence with reckless courage." - from the dj.
