Description
Matt "Loose Cannon" Shannon is an ex-FBI agent turned head of security for a line of cruise ships. It's a career move that owes more to his love affair with bourbon than any fondness for the Miami sun. He has a pile of credit card debt, a disconnected telephone, and a suspended driver's license. He doesn't have a lot of dignity left to cling to. But he's doing what he can.Matt's stepbrother, Jack, has just earned an early release from prison, and he's back in Matt's life with an offer: a one-shot chance to clear a haunting IOU. The shipping route between Miami and Havana has opened up, and every kind of illicit material is slipping through, hidden in the holds of sleek cruise ships like the ones Matt is in charge of. All Matt has to do is arrange for a small security lapse, just long enough for Jack and some friends to board the Norwegian Empress on its next trip to Cuba.In a heist more audacious than anything he's been trained for or dreamed up in his most fevered state, Matt ends up on the wrong end of everything. Not just hijacking. Not just robbery. Not just murder. Caught between two cutthroat crews bent on slaughter and worse, Matt reaches back for long-discarded expertise and long-lost knowledge. As he fights for his future he searches also for understanding: Is the mysterious woman on Jack's crew his salvation? His personal assassin? Or the key to his hidden past?

Cain meets Elmore Leonard - hijacking a cruise ship is just the first step in one man's sprint to deliverance - or destruction.Matt "Loose Cannon" Shannon is an ex-FBI agent turned security chief for the world's largest cruise line. It's a career move that owes more to personal weaknesses than to his fondness for the Miami sun. In the novel's explosive opening, Shannon's stepbrother, Jack Fontana, puts his back against the wall. At a waterfront reunion, Fontana gives Shannon what looks like a game controller - and before he knows what's he's done, Shannon has sunken a freighter in Miami's shipping lane, and his fingerprints are on the device that sent the signal. Only once he's cornered does Shannon learns his stepbrother's real plan - a cruise ship heist that could make enough money to last their lifetimes. Fever is the story of Shannon's race to unravel the deadly labyrinth he's trapped in. With the help of a mysterious woman and his own instincts, he might find the one path that could allow him to survive."Dufris, an award-winning narrator with more than 200 audiobooks to his credit, transforms much of this unabridged production of Rowe's striking debut fiction into riveting sequences that come close to simulating a full-cast recording." - Publishers Weekly "I read a lot of books, hoping for one like Fever to come along.Sean Rowe does just about everything right - think Ocean's Eleven meets Carl Hiaasen, except Fever is better than that." - James Patterson"Fever is a rock-steady, hard-edged thriller, elevated by humor and genuine humanity. A notable debut from Sean Rowe." - George Pelecanos., MWT10755795, Miami (Fla.), Midwesteengrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Read by William Dufris., Robbery, Rowe, Sean., Streaming audiobook., Suspense fiction., Unabridged., [United States] :Tantor Audio :Made available through hoopla,2005., audios, computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-10-15mn-, spoken wordspw
