This fascinating title is a complete story, quite a sea adventure with the text focusing on the great power of weather, particularly rain and winds. The Mariners are heading to Mexico trying to escape the worst of the ocean storms and see the newly built resort, with the "Sulu Queen" cargo carrier, accompanied with some fifty friends on board the "Katapult8" racing boat and "Maxima" yacht.

The power of the nature has been explored together with the one of the ocean; there is a chopper besides the vessels and National Guard making all efforts to rescue. The story told in the book starts with a little show and then it is moving ahead at a very high speed. The readers will definitely greatly enjoy the characters and dialogues of this story. This thriller will be highly recommended to the people who like fascinating tales of the high seas and fierceness of Mother Nature containing lots of interesting details related to the actual sailing and shipping world.

The book tells you about the adventures and it is rich of exciting action; it has been written in a manner making it very easy for the readers to visualize the experience and get a clear and full picture of what was meant by the author. Take some time and enjoy reading.
