Description

"[A] page-turner....Cornwell unleashes danger and violence, from both man and nature."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Bernard Cornwell is to the yachting adventure novel what ex-jockey Dick Francis is to the racetrack thriller."
--Orlando Sentinel

The New York Times bestselling author of The Fort, the Saxon Tales, and the immensely popular Richard Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell has been called, "perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today" (Washington Post). He demonstrates another side of his extraordinary storytelling talents with Stormchild, a contemporary tale of danger on the high and treacherous seas. The gripping story of a man who has lost almost everything in his life and now must race across perilous waters aboard his sloop Stormchild in a desperate attempt to rescue his daughter from the clutches of a shadowy cult and its mad leader. As relentlessly exciting as a Tom Clancy thriller, Stormchild is a masterwork of suspense from one of today's most versatile and accomplished popular novelists.

Back cover copy

Having already lost a son in a terrorist attack, Tim Blackburn must now cope with the death of his beloved wife, killed in a mysterious explosion at sea. All that remains of his decimated family is his missing daughter, Nicole, last seen in the company of the mad, charismatic leader of the shadowy environmental activist group Genesis. Caspar von Rellsteb, self-proclaimed "protector of the planet," presides over his fanatically dedicated followers with an iron fist--and Tim is determined to free his child from his grip. Aboard the sloop Stormchild, he sets out with journalist Jackie Potten in search of Genesis's hidden lair. But the hunt is leading them into perilous waters--and the darkness awaiting Tim Blackburn on the far side of the world could destroy what's left of his sanity and his soul.
