Overview
Six strangers from different parts of the world meet on a private plane in Thailand. Most believe they are traveling to the eastern islands for work and play. Only one knows the truth: the plane is heading west, to the secret island home of Amador Covas-Callas, the drug overlord of the Far East.
Description
Six strangers from different parts of the world meet on a private plane in Thailand. Most believe they are traveling to the eastern islands for work and play. Only one knows the truth: the plane is heading west, to the secret island home of Amador Covas-Callas, the drug overlord of the Far East. Kate Shaw, a prize-winning photographer, along with two missionaries and a private pilot, are unaware that they share a plane with one of America’s leading drug distributors, Marcus Keller. Keller, however, wants to be free of the dark shadows that haunt anyone who works for Amador Covas-Callas. He intends to convince the pilot, Syd Hopkins, to guide the plane to the western islands where he will face the cartel leader once and for all. The passengers on the early November flight must confront more than a change in direction, however. They must survive the broken airplane plummeting through the sky after being shot down by the cartel, a preacher who is descending into madness and an angry Andaman Sea. Not all members of the party will survive. But those who do will have their lives changed forever.
