Book Details

A murderous plot by a ruthless criminal enterprise threatens nuclear destruction at the Panama Canal

Renowned maritime investigator Brick Morgan, recently returned from solving a suspicious overboard on the Bernini Under the Stars, has been tasked with investigating the heist of dangerous isotopes from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington State. But Morgan soon learns of a connection between the stolen nuclear material and a plot to destroy the new third lock of the Panama Canal—and several violent deaths lead him into the morass of a Northwest criminal organization rooted deep in the dark side of Tacoma, Washington. With the threat of a dirty bomb and a deadly duel with organized crime, Morgan teams up with brainy and beautiful FBI Special Agent Nicole Cofield. It’s up to them to stop the cruise ship Rose Diamond from reaching its final destination—the Panama Canal—and avoid explosive results and devastating losses. For those who love forensic intrigue, startling plot twists, and edge-of-the-seat suspense, sit tight, take cover, and prepare for...DETONATION.
