On a Caribbean island, a career criminal is confident he has dodged a cold case murder charge until a spiritual force from the distant past compels him to pay the ultimate price.
Boston businessman Lewis Lowellen just wanted to buy something for his wife, Georgia, something to help send them off on a long-awaited retirement aboard their million dollar sailboat: Destination, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Needing a professional to help sail the yacht, Lewis hires a charter skipper and his girlfriend to share duties during the 1500-mile trip down the Atlantic. While waiting for Georgia to say her goodbyes, Lewis strolls into a pawn shop and pays $65 for a strange document simply because he thinks Georgia will like its “old world charm.” What he doesn’t know is that the document is an original Magna Carta—valued at $21 million—and then stolen from the U.S. National Archives by a sociopath and a silent-alarm wizard, neither of whom can figure out how the Boston man ended up with the manuscript. Life aboard the sailboat is fun for a while, but when the thieves look to their employer in Bermuda to help them find the boat, life becomes a rough and not-so-ready pursuit that ends on a dark night in a Caribbean airport.
