Ted Higuera, the son of Mexican immigrants, grew up in East LA. An unlikely football scholarship was his ticket out of the barrio. Chris Hardwick was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The two become college roommates and best friends.

As a graduation present, Chrisí father offers the boys the use of his sailboat for a summer cruise up the Inside Passage. Chris brings his girlfriend, Meagan OíDonnell along for the trip. Ted canít stand Meagan; he thinks sheís just interested in Chris for his money.

The three have a series of adventures until they stumble upon an al-Qaeda plot to blow up a cruise ship, then the clock starts ticking.

Re: The Inside Passage

After only one day, The Inside Passage reached #7 on Amazon's Best Seller list for Hispanic fiction.

Let's push it up the list for sea stories.

Re: The Inside Passage

I don' think I will bother. "I saw speed 2" it wasn't very realistic or good.

Re: The Inside Passage

"Ted can’t stand Meagan; he thinks she’s just interested in Chris for his money."
Ted is a judgemental SOB. Chris knows very well that Meagan only wants his money, but he's gayer than a blade and more than willing to pay for such a pretty beard to keep that from his father. In fact, Meagan has even promised to help Chris begat an heir, in a way he won't find totally offensive, in order to gain his full inheritance. Which doesn't kick in until Chris is married and has produced at least one child.

Really, I can't stand that Ted. Who the hell does he think he is to judge people that way, if both Chris and Meagan are fine with the arrangement?
