Ex-Marine Tom Cord, partnered by one-time Polish seaman Jan Kusiak, was scraping a living with his boat when the two men came to him with a proposition: one million pesos for a small voyage along the coast. Cord was dubious about accepting the offer, but the girl persuaded him. Though a lot of things were to go wrong, there were compensations.
