Richard and Robin Mariner are in Long Beach, California, to oversee the arrival of their container ship, Sulu Queen, before joining their friend Nic Greenbaum aboard his fifty-million-dollar motor yacht as he races his daughter Liberty in an Olympic-standard Katapult multihull down the coast to Mexico. But when an ARkStorm, with the potential to cause catastrophic devastation, overwhelms them, Richard is forced into dangerously unprecedented action. Turning Sulu Queen into a real Noah's ark, Richard must guide her into the deadliest storm to come off the Pacific in 150 years as he fights to save those closest to him, as well as countless other lives.
