Seize the Storm by Michael Cadnum
Seize the Storm by Michael Cadnum is a good story if you want to really think about what you are reading. Shown from different character's points of view, you get the full story. Susannah and her family are sailing on their yacht when they come across a boat with dead bodies on it. As they look for something to tell them who the people are, they find $80,000. On the other end, there is a plane full of people ready to get the money back from these normal people. These are trained criminals, with nothing else to lose.
Seize the Storm was hard for me to put down. I loved how the author made you think like every one of the characters. You saw and smelled what they did. You felt like you were the one holding the money. Also, I liked the mind warfare that each of the characters had with everyone. Even those on the same side ended up in a mental war with each other. I really did like this book and I think a lot of other people should read it.
