Insurance investigator Brent Calloway may be too hard-boiled to crack a smile, but he'll go to any length to crack a case. Calloway's about to go to extremes to see to it that one ship makes it safely from Hawaii to the mainland.
Going undercover and posing as ruthless killer Spike O'Brien, Calloway quickly discovers that on this ship nothing is what it seems, and no one can be trusted. With so much insurance money at stake, and the whole crew apparently in on the scam, this could end up being a voyage to the bottom of the sea....
And when the real Spike O'Brien shows up, it's Calloway who'll need a good insurance policy. Because life is cheap when the stakes are so high—on a ship of lies bearing a False Cargo.
Also includes the sea adventure "Grounded," in which a Royal Air Force lieutenant loses a friend and tarnishes his reputation, and sets out in search of redemption ... no matter the price.
Rattling machine guns, howling winds, and ship-tossing waves come together as the audio version of False Cargo delivers a full payload of action and intrigue.
