"A ruthless group of shadowy international businessmen, working together with Arabic and Chinese Jihadist terrorists as well as savage Somali pirates, plot to precipitate a global Armageddon-like catastrophe.
Inextricably linked to the barbarous scheme are Patti Tang, a beautiful, rich Chinese-American ship-owner who is hated by many Chinese Muslims, and Jon Lawson, a ship’s captain whose family has been murdered by the terrorists. With a common enemy, their paths inevitably merge while the western world’s intelligence agencies are incapable of countering the abominable scheme. Patti and Jon's quest for the truth and retribution takes them to China, Europe and the USA, the terrorists finally being thwarted in a near apocalyptic finale in the Middle East."
