"Alex Tremain is a pirate in trouble. All he really wants is to reopen his parents' five-star hotel on the Island of Dreams, off the coast of Mozambique. But instead he's facing a mounting tide of debt, his crew of modern-day buccaneers is getting restless, and he has just been dumped by not one, but two women. As if he doesn't have enough on his plate, a chance raid on a ship then sets the Chinese triads after him and, to add insult to injury, corporate lawyer Jane Humphries lands, literally, in his lap"-- Provided by publisher.

This is a physical action packed thriller, the sort I read only for a change. Get past the military and maritime details in the hijacks and ambushes for a smart British double crossed plot in a booty search that reveals South African society with remarkable realism. Shame a little sadistic torture and too much ammo were added, probably for sales. The novel's intrigues and elephants are far more memorable.
