Dark Traverse What happens when a next-gen ship is attacked... But without a single hijacker on board?

Author Name: Sulagna Chaudhury | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Phoenix Incorporated, one of the most powerful industry conglomerates, decide to build a state-of-the-art cruise ship, The Adamas, as part of their bicentennial celebrations. 

Under the able leadership of their Chairman and CEO, Courtney Brown, the team builds a next-gen automated ship, with intelligent technology inbuilt so that the ship can think and act on her own, irrespective of any situation.

And then comes 2020. 

The global pandemic leaves an indelible mark and Phoenix Incorporated is no exception. Cruise, as an industry, is the worst hit; the sail of The Adamas looks bleak, but as the New Normal sets in, Courtney bounces back as a true leader, promising to harness the technology inbuilt on the ship for regrowth and sustainability of the ecosystem at large.

Finally, after more than a year of uncertainty, on the 19th of November 2021, the ship starts her maiden voyage. Onboard is Courtney Brown, along with 100 eminent personalities, including deputies of the newly founded International Peace and Renewed Sustainability Committee (advisors nominated by the G20 countries).

The world awaits with bated breath as the “ship of the future” sets sail, not knowing that she is about to be HIJACKED… but without a single hijacker on board.
