An action/thriller from an author with a history of great books in the genre.

Frank is an ex-CIA assassin haunted by his past and at times, crippled by a crushing guilt.

Living on a remote island in Alaska, working to accept his past and looking for a redemption he can never gain, running from a storm he and his son make a discovery that will have historic ramifications and may just allow Frank to gain back the very thing he's searching for. Redemption.

“Prepare for a wild and wooly ride. You will encounter not only the sea’s deadliest wave, but also adventure, suspense, murder, treasure, and romance. This is the type of story where you forget to breathe. Cussler, Grisham, Clancy, and Ludlum have attracted enormous readerships to the mystery/adventure genre.

Never judge a book by its cover? In this case, definitely. A rubbish cover to match a very below average book. Badly written, some typos, and only got going about 75% of the way through......
