Matt "Loose Cannon" Shannon is an ex-FBI agent turned security chief for the world's largest cruise line. It's a career move that owes more to personal weaknesses than his fondness for the Miami sun. In this novel's explosive opening, Shannon's stepbrother, Jack Fontana, puts his back against the wall. At a waterfront reunion, Fontana gives Shannon what looks like a game controller - and before he knows what he's done, Shannon has sunk a freighter in Miami's shipping lane and his fingerprints are all over the device that sent the signal. Only once he's cornered does Shannon learn his stepbrother's real plan- a cruise ship job that could make enough money to last their lifetimes. Shannon thinks he's only providing backup and intelligence. And by the time he learns what's really going on, he's in too deep: the cruise ship has been hijacked and several people are already dead. "Fever" is the story of Shannon's race to unravel the deadly labyrinth that's grown up around him. With the help of a mysterious woman and his own instincts, he might find the one path that could allow him to survive.
