John Lomas’ absorbing narrative of an exotic smuggling adventure weaves together tales of his extraordinary life on the open sea. This particular voyage begins as a direct call from destiny to a young man from England ready to live life on his own terms.
As the journey continues through the Far East, a team of three friends must confront not only the stormy oceans but also each other and their own fears. Before facing what fate has waiting in store for him in Australia, Lomas leads us on an exciting ride through distant lands and seas where we encounter modern day pirates and other colorful characters along the way.
His insightful commentary on the world he sees and his engaging storytelling make Lomas one of the great adventure writers of our time.

Synchronicity - you know this word. I used to think it just meant coincidence, or the meshing or coming together of two or more related events in a coincidental manner, like finding something you desperately need just sitting on the side of the road. Then one day in Japan, something happened that made me realize that synchronicity involved more - perhaps even a bit of the mysticism that Jung applies to the word. Now I'm not really into all that new-age pseudo science. Quite the opposite. I like to think I'm a realist, where everything has a rational explanation if you just look for it. Even so, a very strange happening on that day led me to do something I don't think I would have done otherwise.
 
Excerpt
Being on the land is fine.
But I prefer to be at sea.

Sir Francis Drake
(1540-1596)
