Former CIA operative Mick Pierce was shadow boxing under a palm tree in the Maldives when an excited shout carried up from the lagoon.
An islander had made a discovery.
Within seconds, the pristine beach was filled with brown fishermen descending from their grass huts. Their feet carried them swiftly under full-length calico sarongs. Square-shouldered with lean bellies, they flashed beautiful smiles as they ran to the water’s edge.
There they stopped abruptly and held their noses. Their smiles disappeared.
Mick watched them wade into the milky white froth, some jabbing downward with pointed sticks. In their native language, they warned one another of each new wave.
A bloated corpse tumbled, limbs akimbo, and came to rest on the sand.
Mick squinted for a better look.
A woman’s body glistened under a torrid sun. Her deep brown skin had stretched tight over her frame. After several days adrift in salt water, her hair had thinned leaving a pitted, burnt scalp. Her eyes had been pecked clean by scavenger birds.
Beyond the lagoon brilliant sunlight played on the Indian Ocean. Women in brightly colored wraps stood up and held their hands over their faces.
More shouts, and two more bodies washed ashore.
Mick broke into a run.
