Publisher's Summary

Ex-Navy SEAL Adam Weldon tracks down kidnappers who have the San Francisco Bay Area teetering on the brink of societal collapse. In this wild, irresistible, white-knuckled ride - much of it via sailboat - through not only the Bay’s world-famous watery landscape but also its unique subcultures and quirky neighborhoods, Adam allies with a tech savvy Oakland cop, child sicario hitmen, and undercover FBI agent Tripnee to battle an out-of-control Silicon Valley billionaire, a charismatic cult with dark secrets, Bay pirates, an apparently unstoppable cartel well on its way to achieving the total and absolute corruption of the Bay Area, and moral rot extending into the highest reaches of the US government.

In the course of this gripping, life-and-death race against time, Adam comes to understand his extraordinary uncle - and himself - as never before. Could his Uncle Peace, a cantankerous ex-Zen monk, be the key not only to saving the Bay Area - and America - but also to sparking a civilizing cultural and spiritual renaissance?

Good book

This book kept me reading long after my bedtime! I'm certainly looking forward to reading more by William McGinnis. Lots of action, intrigue, plus a bit of romance.

Well woven

Good character Developement. A well told story and I of course could follow along in my neighborhoods!

Plus Bill may not remember but he gave me a place to stay for a couple nights when I had a dental emergency on the way to the T in the 80’s.

I will continue to look for his works in audio form.

Great book... lots of adventure!

I always love reading William McGinnis' books, and this one (in the Adam Weldon series) does not disappoint. His experience on the water, and research always pays off in books that help the reader truly experience the different locations where his stories take place. I also enjoy that he includes a romantic aspect to his otherwise solid adventure... and there is usually a personal thread about his character, or past that runs through each thriller, giving us a nice mix of high stake chases, cliff hangers and just the right touch of human feelings we can all relate to. With so much adventure in his books, I find them hard to put them down, and often when I have to, I re-read some of it, just to regain the momentum that had been building, and continues throughout the story. Definitely a good read for all!
