In the preceding novel, Cyberclipper, a prince of Dubai, Yousif Latif, masterminded a perfect crime. He outfitted three three-hundred-foot megayachts with supercomputers to crack the encryption codes of two banks and a casino. He netted over six hundred million dollars and left the police with a cold case.
In this novel, the prince creates five magayachts as factory ships to train refugees around the globe with 3-D printing skills saleable for global employment. These new age arks remain offshore, thus avoiding tariffs and taxes while manufacturing parts used in revolutionary new vehicles called turbopods or T-pods. These vehicles carry a red box, which is an antigravity device enabling them to serve as an automobile, helicopter, and/or airplane. The refugees sign up for a three-month training course and nine months at sea, after which they return to their sponsoring country to become taxpaying employees for at least two years. It’s a win-win scenario for the individual, his family, the country, and of course, the prince who nets over nine hundred million dollars.
Thieves attempt to steal red boxes and also attack an ark to get both the parts and employees in Indiana Jones–like episodes.
In the boldest move of his life, the prince employs his trusted business partners—Matt Flynn, the turbopod inventor, and Foster York, the Aussie who builds the arks and the Airbus company of France to create an aquaclipper. This novel craft is a combination of a jumbo jet and cruise liner to provide the next generation of port-to-port transportation. Having lifelong luxuries beyond one’s wildest imagination, in the end, the prince learns what constitutes the only true pleasure in life.
