Burke Matthews and his wily team of experts on board the salvage cargo ship, The Brigadoon, have hauled everything from Russian nuclear submarines to stranded catamarans. After having spent almost two weeks in the sunny port of Palermo, Italy trying to win the bid to salvage half a million gallons of oil from a distressed cruise ship half-sunk off the coast, Burke starts to worry about the trapped fuel in the ship's hull. As families of the missing passengers urge the country's environmental minister to hold off the salvage as the search for their loved ones continues, Burke knows with each passing day, hope of life diminishes. There's another problem too. The Bella Donna has crashed in the middle of a marine reserve and is on the verge of fatally contaminating the water that also goes to the main water lines for the entire Amalfi Coast. It's an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Allowed to drill finally, he is astonished to hear plaintive knocking from an engine room above. He breaks down the door to find a sick, but very handsome French Canadian waiter trapped for twelve days. Gabriel Bergeron is one of the sexiest guys Burke's ever seen...and he soon learns as he visits the man in a local hospital, one seriously hung dude...

He stared at the capsized wreck of the $450 million cruise liner, the Bella Donna. It was eerie looking at the doomed ship that was so huge it was like a skyscraper lying on its side. He could see that all the doors to the top flight deck's guest rooms were closed. The silence, the lack of activity, was unsettling. Twelve days ago when the ship struck rocks off Salerno on the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, he'd seen the images online of the four thousand passengers climbing over the exposed hull in a human chain, using fire hoses, bed sheets and their hands to make it to the lifeboats.
And now, two days of bad weather had turned the rough seas into an impossible task for Burke and his thirty-five man crew. He pocketed his satellite phone in his waterproof vest, awaiting word to begin the long and difficult task of pumping out the incapacitated ship's half million gallons of diesel and oil.
Even in his wet suit, Burke was freezing. He lay on his belly and circled the wreckage of the vessel on his trusty nine-foot pintail. He was still stunned that almost all the passengers had survived the collision. Submerged rocks had ripped a three-foot hole ...
