Product Overview

A brutal hijacker,
A missing heiress,
And a luxury liner racing toward disaster...
In the quiet shallows of the Florida Keys, Thorn has made a home, tying fishing flies and trying to forget the violence of his past. Now Key Largo is his world. He fishes it, breathes it, makes love in it. Until a phone call from Miami changes everything plunging Thorn into the deep waters of madness and revenge...
In Miami, Thorn's best friend, Sugarman, is fighting for his life. While working security for a luxury liner plagued by theft, Sugarman was attacked by a man with a knife in one hand and 400,000 volts of electricity in the other. And when the M.S. Eclipse sets sail for the Caribbean, both Thorn and Sugarman are swept into a voyage of terror...where a madman hijacks the Eclipse, killing off crew members one by one...where the cruise line owner's missing daughter reappears, igniting the killer's passions--and Thorn's battered heart...where hundreds of lives hang in the balance, as only Thorn stands between a madman's rage and the ultimate carnage at sea...

Praise
"Enough gadgetry to please Clancy fans and the creepiest bad guy since Hannibal Lecter."
"Hall delivers oddball fun at a rip of a pace, without letting you forget that he is literate stylish writer."
"Unfailingly gripping...Explodes with the brilliance of chain lightning."
"But Hall has, and does again in "Buzz Cut," produced memorable screwball women who form unexpected bridges between our hero and his villain."
"What a story."
From the Publisher
Annotation Thrill seeker, adventurer, and tough-guy Thorn is called upon by his buddy, Sugarman, to help him out once again. Sugarman has taken a position as head of security for a Florida cruise ship line, which has a big problem: someone is stealing $50,000 a month from the gambling boat, M.S. Eclipse, and they suspect the same person is also the one systematically knocking off people with ties to the ship. Adventure, sex, and intrigue ensue just off the coast of Florida.
