Pleasure Cruise Shot To Hell(2015)
(The first book in the Bullet-Riddled Yacht series)
A novel by Jay Giles
*** Part 1 of 2. For Will Taggert, an attorney in Orlando, Florida, it starts innocently enough. His client, Banning Sloane, CEO of Inland Bank and Trust, wants him to fly to Rio de Janerio and skipper back a repossessed luxury yacht--the Venetian. It's a big job but not out of the ordinary for Will who routinely goes after the assets of bank customers who fail to repay their loans. Sloan glibly describes the assignment to Will as an "once-in-a-lifetime, all-expenses-paid vacation". And it should have been. The Venetian, formerly owned by failed homebuilder and Sloane nemesis Garcia Cabrera, is a recently restored 155-ft. vintage yacht. You can almost picture elegantly dressed celebrities gathered on the ship's fantail being served canapes and Martinis in long-stemmed glasses by tuxedoed waiters. However, from the moment Will arrives in Rio, things go dizzyingly wrong. He quickly realizes he's been thrust into a dangerous game of betrayal driven by forces he doesn't understand. Determined to survive, Will and his crew of three take the Venetian on an unrelenting, breathtaking battle of an ocean voyage. They're boarded by pirates, captured by terrorists, and forced to transport suitcases full of cocaine. When one of the smugglers presses the barrel of his gun to Will's forehead, he's sure he's a dead man. 'fraid not. What they have in mind is far, far worse.
