After years of relative calm, the threat from Somali pirates has increased exponentially.
When a few American ships get taken, U.S. authorities become determined to find the source of this new danger.

It is a dangerous plan, made more so by Jake's personal involvement with the beautiful heiress to a Greek shipping fortune.
If he is not careful, Jake is as likely to end up as a corpse as he is to uncover his nemesis.
