Summary
"The Starfire Breeze steams its way north toward the Gulf of Alaska, buffeted by crisp sea winds blowing down from the Arctic. Those on board are seeking peace, relaxation, adventure, escape. But there is no escape in this place of unspoiled natural majesty. Because terror strolls the decks even in the brilliant light of day ... and death is a conspicuous, unwelcome passenger. Former Seattle policeman J.P. Beaumont--a damaged homicide detective who has come here to heal from fresh, stinging wounds--will find that the grim ghosts pursuing him were not left behind ... as a pleasure cruise gone horribly wrong carries him into lethal, ever-darkening waters."--Page 4 of cover
