If Lars Marlin had three wishes, two have already been granted: he has escaped from Devil’s Island ... and he has come face to face with the man who put him there—Paco Corvino. But the third wish—putting a bullet in Corvino—will have to wait. Now the two are off to sea serving on a luxury yacht.
Corvino is a convict, con-man and killer who has schemed his way into a position as chief steward on a yacht sailing out of Rio de Janeiro. And, in a twist as devious as it is diabolical, he’s managed to install Lars—his hated rival—as captain of the very same vessel. And there are even darker twists to come....
Lars is determined to find out what Corvino has up his sleeve and what killer cargo he’s hiding on board. But the yacht owner’s daughter proves to be a beautiful—and dangerous—distraction. Will Lars be safe in her arms or is she part of Corvino’s plot—a deadly trap set with honey?
Don’t miss the boat—as Cargo of Coffins brings to vivid life this scintillating story of suspense and surprising revelations at sea.
“One of Hubbard’s most accomplished, even stylish stories ... a plot-twist that would make Jeffery Deaver proud ... brilliant.” —Booklist
