Mireille Duval Jameson, daughter to one of the richest men in Haiti, is kidnapped and held for 13 terrifying days while her father refuses to pay her kidnappers.

A complex and imaginative dystopian tale, On Such a Full Sea is about Fan, a fish-tank diver who lives in B-Mor, a work colony formerly known as Baltimore.
