about

Lucinda Leung, a Chinese born American journalist has been covering the civil war in Colombia. Her marriage is in tatters, her future career prospects questionable. She is reassigned to a politically unstable Panama.

And into Panama too comes Mohan Krishnaswami, the man responsible for her father’s death many years before. So does Peter Morrison, a recently redundant employee of Mohan, drawn to help a relative with a son on the run from twisted justice.While the almost bankrupt shipowner Mohan is drawn into a web of dubious business schemes, assisting a Colombian drug baroness and her hideous playboy son with designs on removing the president of Panama, Lucinda uncovers an even more dangerous plot to further destabilize the entire region.

Tension builds, while we move from Bogotá to London, and back in time to 1987 Hong Kong and Guangzhou: Then in a whirlwind of entwined events to near future Houston, Panama, Miami, North Korea, the Colombian Andes and the Caribbean.And the prizes? For some, if they succeed, the riches that may flow from the devastation of the Panama Canal. For Lucinda, a distant vengeance for her father’s death and, perhaps fulfillment in love.

Author Barry Evetts is a 35-year veteran of the international maritime industry with assignments that have taken him from his native New Zealand to sojourns in London, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Panama and Bogotá. He is presently based in Caracas, Venezuela.

Editorial Reviews

“…a sort of ripping yarn with all the intrigue one likes to think goes on in the shipping world. It is a spicy cocktail of unscrupulous shipowners in Hong Kong, cagey conversations between brokers at the Baltic Exchange, and dodgy dealings of drug barons in South America.” Trade Winds - International Shipping Gazette.
