Daniel and Vanessa Parker are an American success story. He is a Washington, DC, power broker, and she is a physician with a thriving practice. But behind the gilded façade, their marriage is a shambles, and their teenage son, Quentin, is self-destructing. In desperation, Daniel dusts off a long-delayed dream—a sailing trip around the world. Little does he know, the voyage he hopes will save them may destroy them instead.
Half a world away on the lawless coast of Somalia, Ismail Adan Ibrahim is living a life of crime in violation of everything he was raised to believe—except for the love and loyalty driving him to hijack ships for ransom and plot the rescue of his sister, Yasmin, from the man who murdered their father. There is nothing he will not do to save her, even if it means taking innocent lives.
Paul Derrick is the FBI’s top hostage negotiator. His twin sister, Megan, is a celebrated defense attorney. They have reached the summit of their careers by savvy, grit, and a secret determination to escape the memory of the day their family died. When Paul is dispatched to handle a hostage crisis at sea, he has no idea how far it will take him and Megan into the past—or the chance it will give them to redeem the future.
Across continents and oceans, through storms and civil wars, the paths of these individuals converge in a single, explosive moment. It is a moment that will test them and break them, but it will also leave behind an unexpected glimmer of hope—that out of the ashes of tragedy and misfortune, the seeds of justice and reconciliation can grow.

From the Back Cover:
PRAISE FOR A WALK ACROSS THE SUN
"Since my first novel was released over 20 years ago, I have been presented with many opportunities to endorse the works of other authors hoping to find a publisher. I have always declined, until now. Corban Addison has written a novel that is beautiful in its story and also important in its message. A Walk Across the Sun deserves a wide audience. And, I strongly suspect Mr. Addison will be heard from again and again." - John Grisham
"A pulse-revving novel with a serious message." - O Magazine
"[A] dazzling transcontinental story about the power of conviction, the bonds of family, and the tenacity of love." - Publisher's Weekly
"Chilling, suspenseful, and powerful ... Readers will mourn the injustices depicted and celebrate the triumphs long after the last page is turned." - Library Journal
"A searing and timely story." - Toronto Sun
PRAISE FOR THE GARDEN OF BURNING SAND
"A compelling novel with a conscience and a heart, gripping in its drama, and unique in its insights into a hidden and dangerous world. Resonant with authenticity, The Garden of Burning Sand rewards the reader on every level." - Richard North Patterson, NYT Bestselling Author
"Corban Addison is a rare find in the world of thriller writers. Timely, topical, and impeccably researched, his novels embrace the full sweep of the human experience. If you like stories of good people struggling to do right in the world's forgotten places, there is no one better suited to take you on the ride of your life." - John Hart, NYT Bestselling Author
"Compelling ... A sense of urgency will keep readers engrossed, and, despite the tragedy depicted, they will also find comforting themes connected to love and family." - Library Journal
"The Garden of Burning Sand is a fast-paced thriller that authentically captures the plight of young women in much of Africa today and clearly lays out the complexity of combatting HIV on the continent." - Andrew Fuller, Director of the John Snow, Inc. and World Education Center for HIV
Tragedy All-American power broker Daniel Parker is sailing around the world with his son, Quentin, in an attempt to reconnect. Their bond has become stronger than ever—until they are attacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean.
Vengeance Ismail is the leader of the pirate band. He has secrets that even his men don’t know. Secrets he will hold on to even after his arrest. His sister’s life depends on it.
