Blood Canal, or ‘Nahr Damm’ in Arabic… is an enigmatic phrase found in the treasure trove of data retrieved by Navy SEALs from Osama Bin Laden’s lair in Pakistan… a reference to an ancient battle where a Muslim warlord turned a nearby canal red with the blood of his victims.

It's a codename... but what’s the target?

The CIA’s supercomputer kicks out a long list of prospects including the world's biggest cruise ship now on her maiden voyage.  The Ocean Diamond is a ship as big as a city... and no doubt a trophy target for Al Qaeda.  But the evidence is slim... little more than a digital hunch... and the ship is fortress of high-tech security.

Leo de Sade, a former American hacker reborn with a new identity thanks to the French Foreign Legion, is the unlikely hero signed up to ride shotgun.  But what starts out as a simple security operation soon becomes a desperate fight for survival when the ship and the lives of her 9,000 passengers and crew are menaced by a smart weapon of devastating destructive power and Leo uncovers a conspiracy of players far more dangerous than Al Qaeda.

With breathless pace… intricate plotting, and authentic detail, Blood Canal is a feast for lovers of page-turning suspense.
