JT Blackwell is a wealthy old shipbuilder who is in his eighties. One morning he receives devastating news that his only granddaughter, Courtney Evans, has been captured by Somali pirates. The pirates have given him an ultimatum. Remembering a recent conference in New York City, Blackwell contacts Carl Peterson for help. Carl assigns Rick Morgan's team to come up with a plan to rescue Courtney Evans and her friends. Rick soon determines that she is being held aboard an old Liberty ship that has gone aground in the harbor at Eyl. Rick contacts an old friend to provide logistic support. However, as the mission unfolds, it soon becomes apparent that the team has been compromised. As a result, Rick makes a difficult decision, which eventually leads the team to Cannes, France, where Carl confronts an old enemy...an enemy that he thought was dead.
