In the Coral Sea near Australia, Kira Beaumont witnessed a crime of piracy that changed her life forever. The eighteen-year-old heir to a giant shipping empire, she now has a dangerous obsession. As newspapers speculate about her disappearance, and magazines invent gossip about future TV weddings, Captain Kira Beaumont fights a secret crusade that no one else can, one thousand feet under the Pacific.
Goal: to save refugees attacked on the high seas.
Enemy: modern pirates, murderous and well-armed.
Secret weapon: a re-born combat submarine, bristling with twenty-first century technology to fight an ancient evil.
Thunderfish: some legends were meant to come true.
