Coauthor of the bestselling Seven Days in May and other novels, Knebel is also known for thrillers (Night of Camp David written on his own. His 10th novel rushes into action when Mitch Donahey, a ship broker, meets luscious Mona Harkinson in Hawaii; they can't wait to go to bedand they do, for several days. She then leaves him yearning, and realizing that he knows nothing about her. When he reaches Denmark, however, he hears about the wreck of a supertanker, with Harkinson identified as captain. The ship was sabotaged for profit; she is safe, but anguished over the loss. Convinced that the woman he loves has been the second victim of modern pirates, Donahey goes all-out for evidence against a former member of his platoon in Vietnam, vicious Bones Elroy. Elroy and his gang have amassed millions, secretly selling the crude oil on the huge tankers, then sinking them, a plan they set in motion once more. But this time, Donahey and Captain Harkinson are ready to battle the pirates aboard her next command on the high seas. The story is colorful, terrifically exciting, a treat for those willing to believe the rather farfetched plot. Paperback rights to Berkley. (September 26)
