Uniquely illustrating how drugs and lack of security on the water are a threat to our national security, a compelling account using our nation's rivers.
Seeing the dangers of river traffic, understanding the awesome power of water, and being inspired by the Oklahoma City bombing; the author paints a vivid account of a very realistic and unique possibility. The book is written is a Tom Clancy style yet includes elements of humor, notions of "honor among thieves" and personal integrity. The author is a mariner who has worked with towboats and barge traffic for eighteen years, and gives the "land lubber" a glimpse into the lifestyle of a typical "river rat". The book begins with a prologue to help the reader understand how maritime river trade works. It sets off by drawing the reader into the life of one particular mariner, and follows him through some bad personal choices until he is found stuck in a terrible situation, and unwittingly sets into motion a domestic terrorism plan that devastates thousands of people and wipes out one of the countries premier cities. An epilogue sums up life for the characters after the crisis.
