From the book back cover:
Kept secret from the American public, after the inept response of public emergency agencies to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, military contractor companies began quietly offering private emergency services.
At a price only the wealthy can afford, these contracts function as a world-wide 9-1-1, offering personal rapid-response extraction from anywhere at any time in any situation. The Sunset Mist luxury liner has been overrun by terrorists off the coast of Florida. On board is billionaire Danforth Percy Sinclair, who makes one last desperate phone call before his capture to activate his Katrina contract.
On shore, at Redfire Advanced Security Solutions corporate headquarters, Rod North and a small team of ex-Special Forces operatives are dispatched to rescue Mr. Sinclair. Also converging on the scene are a federal negotiator and Navy support vessel. Unknown to them all, there are secrets and deceptions already taking place on The Sunset Mist.
Rod North and his team don’t know it, but they are charging headlong into a situation far more dangerous and complex than they could possibly imagine. They’ll be lucky to extract Sinclair, luckier still to escape alive!
