Drug baron Janac has turned to piracy to fund his battle for control of the Australian narcotics trade. When he attacks the MV Shawould on an evil night in the South China Sea, it seems he has also found the perfect victim for his psychotic games.
Phil Hamnet and his wife Anna are sharing a last voyage on the Shawould before the arrival of their twins. Hamnet escapes Janac’s attack, but Anna is taken and held hostage to ensure first his silence and then his cooperation. But when Janac’s rogue ex-Special Forces crew attack more ships and men start dying, Hamnet has to decide if he can continue to sacrifice the lives of unknown sailors to save the woman he loves.
It’s an awful decision for anyone to have to make, but for a man who’s already had the same dilemma – in a lifeboat, adrift in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean – it’s a living nightmare.
Janac’s first appearance was in the suspense thriller The Defector – a #1 Thriller on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de. The Wrecking Crew is the sequel, and both books are regulars in the thriller charts.
Mark Chisnell writes the kind of stories that keep you turning the pages on holiday, and still thinking about them when you get back to work …
The books include the Kindle chart-topping thrillers – The Defector, The Wrecking Crew and The Fulcrum Files – as well as award-winning works of non-fiction. He’s a former professional sportsman and also works as a broadcaster and journalist, writing for some of the world’s leading magazines and newspapers, including Esquire and the Guardian.
Probably Mark’s greatest achievement was hitch-hiking to Mt Everest base-camp in Tibet. In training shoes. Or maybe that was the stupidest.
