From the legendary #1 New York Times bestselling author of Plum Island and Night Fall, Nelson DeMille’s blistering new novel features an exciting new character—U.S. Army combat veteran Daniel “Mac” MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise.

Daniel Graham MacCormick—Mac for short—seems to have a pretty good life. At age thirty-five he’s 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 don’t tan, and a boat with a big bank loan. Truth be told, Mac’s 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 Carlos’s clients—a 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 Sara’s grandfather when he fled Castro’s revolution. With the “Cuban Thaw” underway between Havana and Washington, Carlos, Eduardo, and Sara know it’s only a matter of time before someone finds the stash—by accident or on purpose. And Mac knows if he accepts this job, he’ll walk away rich…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.

    Loved this book. Mr. Demille has rolled back the calendar and crafted a rollicking good novel full of his trademark wit and sarcasm, adventure and spy craft, while shining a bright light on the corruption and suppression that still exists in Cuba.
  • Good, but not great!

    I enjoyed this book, but it let we wanting. I really wish DeMille would bring back John Corey. I get it that as an author he probably gets bored writing sequel after sequel with the same main character, but in Corey he has a winning recipe. This new character definitely has some Corey in him, but of course that’s DeMille alter ego coming out. Bottomline, this book was good, not great, but still very much worth my money and my time.

    Enjoyed the book greatly. Action, humor and history together. Hope to see Mac continue as a character.

    Nelson must have needed fast cash for an expansion of house on Long Island. This book is the worst thing he has ever written and I am a fan! I just kept waiting for the story to unfold in some unexpected way with a plot twist or two, never happens. Instead John Corey becomes a fisherman, meets an attractive Cuban girl, fill in the blank. Don’t bother wasting time or money!

    Always be prepared with a DeMille book...easy to pick up, almost impossible to put down. A fantastic read, packed with sarcastic wit.

    the story was predictable, the writing average but the characters were just juvenile fantasies.

    Did Nelson DeMille really write this book? If he did he should be ashamed. The plot is weak and the story just draaags along. The protagonist, Dan MacCormick is a retired Army Captain who runs a charter fishing boat in Key West. The Dan MacCormick in DeMillle's book is a smart aleck, who makes trite, banal jokes and thinks about sex all the time. He reminds you of the nerd in high school who was the class clown that no one liked. The other characters are no better. I've read most of DeMille's books and this ranks at the bottom.
