Random House, Inc. Dave Brewster has just finished serving five years of a ten-year robbery sentence. He either has to go straight, or pull off a job that will put him on easy street for the rest of his life -- he chooses the job of a lifetime, one that's been five years in the making.
Every year luxury yachts are shipped from Florida to Europe by way of a huge transporter. Brewster and his hand-picked crew of crime specialists plan a spectacular heist of one of the yachts, along with an estimated $250 million worth of jewels, art and cash being shipped on the other 16 vessels.
But Brewster is not the only one attempting to take advantage of this floating catch of a lifetime. As agendas conflict, the result is an enormously exciting cat-and-mouse chase and a surprise dénouement on the high seas.
