Description
Nick Sandman won a Victoria Cross in the Falklands War, but his heroism cost him his marriage, his savings and two years in the hospital. Determined to start afresh, he plans to sail his beloved ketch Sycorax to New Zealand. But then he finds his boat beached, looted and rotting near his former home, now owned by media star Tony Bannister. To earn money to restore it, Nick agrees to captain Tony's yacht, Wildtrack, in a transatlantic race. Soon Nick is sucked into Tony's messy private life: Bannister may have been responsible for his wife's death, and her father is plotting to kill him. And now Nick is falling in love with Tony's mistress, Angela. Before long Nick finds his own life on the line as he battles human treachery and nature's storms on a mid-Atlantic "killing ground".
