Another marvellous adventure in the Matt Drake series, now 23 books strong. In this novel a luxury passenger liner has been taken hostage by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean, and Drake and the Strike Force team are called in. What are the pirates really after? Ransom? Or is there something else driving them? Thankfully our intrepid team are on hand to try to save the passengers, but then, of course, things go pear shaped.
This is one of my favourite series, yes it's a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. I love the banter between the characters that I've gotten to know so well over the years. Great escapist fiction, and a lot of fun. I recommend this series to all lovers of action and adventure.
