Against a backdrop of international intrigue and ruthless drug monopolies, award-winning author Davis Bunn delivers an intoxicating page-turner in this redemptive thriller.

Multi-billion dollar giant Revell Pharmaceuticals is devouring its competition. A new research breakthrough propels the company into releasing its most profitable product ever. Yet a family crisis confronts them when Kirra Revell, heiress to the empire, goes missing.

Taylor Knox, an employee of Revell's latest acquisition, is blackmailed into leading the search. An expert surfer, Taylor pursues the world's biggest waves as a cover, only to be ensnared in a deadly contest of corporate espionage.

In the race to find Kirra, everyone's motives are suspect. A Celtic monk's warning only heightens the peril. Is it money, power, passion, or something deeper that compels Taylor to risk everything?

From Scotland's holy islands to the rugged Basque coast of Spain, from boardrooms and luxury yachts to the dungeons of America's oldest surviving fortress, the hunt is on. Can Taylor Knox achieve his quest before time runs out for Kirra Revell -- and for himself?

I was a bit disappointed after reading this book. I'm not a surfer, but that's how he starts off the story. I found that distracting.
It barely touches the surface of drug discovery with pharmaceutical companies. It is heavily involved with the main character having self awakening to God and trying to let go of his past with an old lover.

It's readable, but not very entertaining and didn't really anything away from it.
