It began with a chance meeting and led to a date at a small French restaurant in a city by the sea.  She ordered expensive wine.  He paid the bill.  She spoke of the sea.  He was haunted by her green eyes and copper-colored skin.  Then, in a matter of weeks, the woman named Cricket Page would lead Wilson Lander away from the moorings of his familiar life, away from his relationship with a successful businesswoman and onto a tycoon's yacht called the Compound Interest--for a journey across the great Sargasso Sea.

Coming ashore in a world of searing mystery and danger, Lander will pay the price for his unquenchable desire for Cricket Page, for their moments of stolen pleasure and her cryptic promises of a life of luxury together.  For she is a pirate's daughter, and in an exotic land exploding with cruelty and violence, populated by maniacs and plunderers, Wilson Lander must escape the woman who has stolen his heart--and given him his freedom. . . .

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Around the same time, in a farfetched plot element so smoothly integrated into the story it feels completely natural, Lander falls in with some young African men, survivors of the tribal warfare ravaging their home, the fictional country of Bupanda.
