Daniel and Vanessa Parker are an American success story. He is a Washington, D.C. power broker, and she is a physician with a thriving practice. But behind the gilded fac̦ade, their marriage is a shambles, and their teenage son, Quentin, is self-destructing. In desperation, Daniel dusts off a long-delayed dream of theirs--a sailing trip around the world. Little does he know, the voyage he hopes will save them may destroy them instead. Half a world away, on the lawless coast of Somalia, Ismail Adan Ibrahim is living a life of crime in violation of everything he was raised to believe--except this: the love and loyalty driving him to hijack ships for ransom and to plot the rescue of his sister, Yasmin, from the man who murdered their father. There is nothing he will not do to save her, even if it means taking innocent life. Paul Derrick is the FBI's top hostage negotiator. His twin sister, Megan, is a celebrated defense attorney. They have reached the summit of their careers by savvy, grit, and a secret determination to escape the memory of the day their family died. When Paul is dispatched to handle a hostage crisis at sea, he has no idea how far it will take Megan and him into the past--or the chance it will give them to redeem the future. Across continents and oceans, through storms and civil wars, their paths converge in a single, explosive moment. It is a moment that will test them, and break them, but that will also leave behind an unexpected glimmer of hope--that out of the ashes of tragedy and misfortune the seeds of justice and reconciliation can grow.

My favorite book that I read in 2015. A fantastic book. Corban Addison is one of my favorite authors.

I love this author and I loved this book. Corban Addison really has a talent for character development and he is very well reserched when he writes. If you liked this one check out; A Walk Across the Sun & The Garden of Burning Sand. Both of his other novels are just as good, and to some, they are better. *UPDATE* Corban's new release Janaury 24th 2017: "A Harvest of Thorns" I personally cannot wait for this title. The new novel deals with the garment and textile factories and industry in Bangladesh. Could be his best one yet!

What a good book. All the characters drew me into their stories. Enjoyed each of their perspectives. A look into a terrible situation and how the different character's backgrounds, beliefs and decisions affect the outcome. Very good!
