An innocent Seattle sailor is pulled into a dangerous web of espionage in this thriller that “is almost impossible to put the book down” (The Oregonian).
In this “enthralling” thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author, Jay Becker, an overworked, underpaid musician, is trying to earn some extra cash by giving sailing lessons on Puget Sound (The San Diego Union-Tribune). When a mysterious woman named Marlene hires him for what appears to be a simple expedition, he has no idea that he will be drawn into a plot that involves the CIA, the FBI, and a kaleidoscope of spy, counterspy; cross, double-cross—with the lives of himself, the woman he loves, and his best friend hanging in the balance . . .
“Pearson skillfully spins this thriller with sense-of-place, breakneck pace, and economically drawn, believable characters.” —Library Journal
