WIRED is a high seas thriller that explores the entire spectrum of human emotion. It is a story about love, fear, self-doubt, determination, and self-sacrifice. It’s also a story about how a single event can change the fragile lives of ordinary people.
When the day cruise ship, Majestic Star, is hijacked and wired with explosives by members of “Los Zetas” it’s up to just a handful of courageous individuals to rescue the 218 passengers on board before they are mercilessly killed. But the real story is about how the ship captain, his wife, the wife's brother, and the Coast Guard admiral, not only brave the crisis, but daringly meet it head-on. WIRED is a dramatic, modern-day saga that deals with how the proliferation of drug violence can spill over international borders.
“Sometimes we don’t pick our battles…they pick us.”
On a picture-perfect day, a day cruise ship is hijacked off the coast of Florida and “wired” with explosives. At the same time car bombs explode across America—lots of car bombs—including the DEA Headquarters in Virginia. As these startling revelations unfold the perpetrators turn out to be the "Los Zetas", a band of ultra-violent military defectors formerly trained in the US to combat Mexico's drug cartels. Now working for the cartels, the Los Zetas have joined forces with Al-Qaeda to exact the release of Colombian drug boss, Juan Carlos Alvarez—the most feared and revered drug lord in the Western Hemisphere.
For Captain Skip Myles, the situation transcends belief. The unimaginable shock of losing his vessel to armed terrorists—in Florida waters no less, a mere ten miles from port—has left him a bewildered captive on his own ship. When he doesn’t come home from his evening cruise, his worried wife calls her ex-Navy SEAL brother in Detroit. Cal rushes to her side and later embarks on a lone mission to rescue Skip himself, convinced that if he doesn’t, no one else will.
Coast Guard Rear Admiral Ray Hanna has the ship surrounded but finds himself on a political leash. He can’t release Alvarez and he can’t storm the ship without endangering the 218 passengers. It's a standoff. When the hijackers begin blowing up passengers wearing life jackets rigged with C-4—makeshift suicide bomber vests—Hanna receives 24 hours to end the deadlock or else, leaving him with just one unthinkable choice.
Later that night, armed with a black-market Uzi and some borrowed scuba gear, Cal falls back into the Gulf of Mexico for his two-mile underwater swim to the Majestic Star, plunging headlong into a three-way Armageddon between the US Coast Guard, Al-Qaeda, and the Mexican Mafia.
