Soon, Kip and Brigitte undertake a surreptitious love affair that, if discovered, could prove fatal for them both. As the tension on board ratchets up, a terrified Brigitte agrees to flee with Kip. But Kip’s trust in his lover quickly erodes as more of her past is revealed. And, he keeps looking over his shoulder wondering how long it will be before his own past catches up to him. show more
