Danger lurks on the cruise ship Bella Constance as a killer waits for an opportunity to make this voyage the last for its owner—Loukas Constance.
Determined to take a break from their hectic and dangerous jobs, Jesse and her P.I. partner Billy Blackhawk book a weeklong cruise to Bermuda. But once on board the ship, their well-deserved vacation turns into another dangerous and deadly case when they are hired to find a killer.
Rich and powerful, Loukas and Bella Constance plan to sell all the ships in their cruise line, with the exception of the Bella Constance. This decision doesn’t sit well with some family members who insist that buyers want a package deal—all or nothing. When Loukas announces that nothing is going to stop the sale because the deal is already in the works, tempers flare, and bad things start to happen.
A threat to kill Loukas has been made, and the race is on to stop the perpetrator before the mission is accomplished—sending Jesse and Billy into the depths of a nightmare that doesn’t end until someone dies in this tale of terror on the high seas.
