Two American couples sailing across the Indian Ocean are brutally taken hostage by Somali pirates only a day’s sail east of the Seychelles Islands.

A homeless woman freezes to death sleeping next to St. Brigid’s Church across from New York’s Tompkins Square Park. She has renowned New York photographer Channey Moran’s name and phone number in her pocket.

Roy Roy, the world’s most wanted environmental activist, is in hiding in Belfast. He learns that his Boston friends’ lives are in mortal danger as captives of Somali pirates, and begins plans to rescue them.

Channey Moran knows none of the above. But he soon finds a treacherous journey of redemption awaiting him.

Photo Shoot examines how unforeseen choices that connect disparate events—the pirate attack and the dead woman—propel Channey into a gripping evaluation of his life. Surviving a rescue mission, headed by the notorious Roy Roy, is in question as he decides to what lengths he will go to help people he loves, as well as those he doesn’t even know.

Photo Shoot is a fast paced thriller about rescuing good people from remorseless Somali pirates. New York photographer Channey Moran is enlisted by the notorious Roy Roy to stage a photo shoot that will function as a decoy event that allows Roy Roy’s hand-picked mercenaries and their weapons to enter Somalia and find where the captives are held.

Photo Shoot is the second in the Channey Moran series of thrillers.
