"Katherine Adams is taking a cruise on the fabulous Ocean Majestic, the largest and most luxurious ocean liner in the world. This is exactly the break Katherine needs from her demanding Atlanta legal practice ... and it's also a chance to forget the demons that still haunt her, to forget the madman who abducted and tortured her twenty years ago." "On board the ship, Katherine meets John Delaney, a streetwise ex-NYPD detective who is now a lawyer. Romance is certainly in the air, but all is not quite right aboard the Majestic. Events soon turn Katherine's romantic dream into another grisly nightmare." "Katherine witnesses a violent argument between two men. Then one of them turns up dead. After Katherine and Delaney narrowly escape a disaster of terrifying proportions, she must quickly learn how to survive in the dark and dangerous world of international conspiracy and terrorism. From the blood-smeared decks of the Majestic to the achingly beautiful - and dangerous - countryside of Italy to the streets of New York City, Katherine finds herself in a desperate race against a ruthless hit man. And unless she and Delaney can unmask the sinister cabal behind the killing, she will certainly become its next victim."--BOOK JACKET.
