Abstract:

Aussie journalist Jonno Bligh is working for a London tabloid when he scoops the story of his career. He turns it into a bestselling book and goes to Hollywood to write the screenplay. There he acquires an Oscar and a cocaine habit. While sailing in the Indian Ocean, a storm cripples his yacht and forces him to take refuge on a beautiful Indonesian island, the same island murderous modern-day pirate BangBang Budiman uses as a hiding place for the spoils of his heists in the notorious Malaccan Strait. One of his victims is Annie Greenwood, abducted while sailing with her husband and another couple. BangBang's gang kill the men and take the women to the island. Jonno rescues Annie and together they flee the island with BangBang's treasure. They escape, only to be locked up in a Jakarta jail on suspicion of drug smuggling. BangBang vows to kill Jonno and get his booty back. A traumatised Annie returns home to London alone to recover and face a terrible dilemma. Jonno returns to his yacht to find an unwelcome visitor waiting for him ...
