About the Book
Two men separated by a strict code of honor—locked in a lethal game of international terror . . .

Jorge Cordoba has schemed and murdered his way to the top of a Colombian drug cartel intent on bankrupting the industrialized nations of the world. But when the freighter delivering the goods that will secure the cartel’s—and Cordoba’s—future goes missing, he’s thrown into a life or death struggle to recover it.

Enter Navy Lieutenant Daniel Blake, a former merchant marine officer who’s just been ordered to lead a boarding party of seven men and one woman onto an abandoned freighter. In the hull of the freighter are 30 tons of cocaine, 350 million dollars in cash—and half a dozen corpses with their tongues cut out.

Cut off from his own ship with a typhoon rapidly approaching, Blake and his team are plunged into a battle of terror against not one, but two treacherous enemies—Cordoba’s strike force racing to the scene and a savage murderer who is still aboard.

At the heart of this electrifying novel are two very different men, separated by their morality and strict code of honor—bound together in a deadly game of power and survival that each must fight to the very end.


Maurice Medland has to be one of the best of the best adventure writers in America today. Tom Clancy, Steve Coontz, and Nelson DeMille fans will find Medland has a talent for creating fast action, nasty villains, and rousing escapism that is second to none. A master storyteller.
- Clive Cussler
It is such a pleasure to discover a new author who has the ability to write a story that comes "alive" in the first few pages, and continues that way throughout. Medland did this for me in Point of Honor -- a real page turner. This book I found difficult to put down. [It is] one hell of a story. Thank you, Maurice Medland.

Maurice Medland writes like a seasoned veteran, plots like a pro, and knows how to keep his readers turning pages. I'm sure Point of Honor is just the first of a host of big books from this talented writer.
