The Afrikaans (Thomas Prescott Book 3)

“BEST THOMAS PRESCOTT YET!” –LisaMariesAttic 

“BEST OF THE SERIES!” –Louis Pledge “Library Lou” 

Intimate in scale, but grandly outfitted, the luxury cruise liner ‘The Afrikaans’ hosts no more than 208 pampered guests, among them; former FBI contract agent Thomas Prescott. When the ship is overtaken by African pirates who are demanding the U.S. send medical relief to a small Zulu village in South Africa, it is up to Prescott to keep the 400 hostages alive. As the U.S. tries to figure out how to combat the terrorists’ plot from the outside, World Health Organization doctor, Gina Brady, undertakes the impossible task of rescuing three children from the secluded village. As the deadline draws near, Prescott and Brady must race against the clock to discover the truth; is it medical relief the pirates seek or a two billion dollar ransom from one of the richest men in the world. Or could the implications be so profound, and the stakes so high, a war hangs in the balance.

“Blending modern day piracy and the high seas with international and government intrigue and deception, Pirog has crafted yet another novel that is chock full of WTF moments that will have you skipping sleep and possibly meals just to find out what happens next. It’s a real page turner, that’s for sure. If I could give it more than five stars, I would.”

“A cruise ship highjacked by pirates, the Aids epidemic in Africa and new characters make for a thrilling read. There are lots of twist and turns. The book has you thinking you know who is behind the highjacking and blackmail several different times, only to change your mind again. This book is a great read even if you haven’t read the others by this author. I can’t wait for his next novel.”
