What do Caribbean islands, international business interests, living on a sailboat and global currencies, have in common?. Meet Quaid. When a theoretically routine assignment suddenly runs aground he finds himself in dangerous waters. In the international sailing community, however, his solo lifestyle with strong personal sovereignty did not necessarily distinguish him.
Quaid’s quest for ways to maintain his freedom and lifestyle require humor, cunning and the unexpected - his recipe for staying a step ahead of the forces that want him gone. The Iraqi Dinar, unscrupulous currency traders, an attractive intuitive client and struggles for economic freedom all collide. Not trusting any system or government, he forges strange allies that soon complicate his life, in this story of monetary power brokers and personal survival.
Disturbing, yet all too believable questions about personal freedoms, the safety and value of our money and trust in our governments all arise. The dynamic interplay of fact and fiction produces both a compelling read and a very believable character in Quaid. Whether the desirable intuitive Nicole wants a short term affair or becomes the partner of his dreams adds to Quaid's list of growing unknowns.
