Plot summary

Being an orphan and an illegitimate child, Jamie Sommers grew up knowing he had no hope of heaven. Conceived in adultery and born in sin, Jamie was destined to repeat the sins of his parents - or so the nuns told him. And he proved them right. Taking to the sea, Jamie sought out danger and adventure in exotic ports all over the world as a smuggler, gun runner - and murderer. Tough enough to handle anything, he's survived foreign prisons, pirates and a shark attack. But in a quiet seaside town in Delaware, Jamie discovered something that was enough to drive him insane - and change his life forever. For it was in Hawkes Harbor that Jamie came face to face with the ultimate evil.
