Product description


When a huge, battle-scarred sperm whale enigmatically strands itself on Brighton beach, controversial marine biologist Roddy Ormond is baffled. Soon whales are impeding shipping, travelling up rivers, and beaching aggressively in huge numbers, and Roddy - appointed co-ordinator of the crisis amidst public hysteria - fears they are trying to warn mankind of impending ecological catastrophe. His efforts to return the whales to the sea, and investigate why they left it, are cruelly sabotaged by shipping magnate Tony Rattigan and government figures, who are both implicated in a vast marine scandal involving chemical weapons.Disgraced and discredited, it is only by independently cracking the code of the whales' language that Roddy can hope to nail the guilty men, and convince the world to listen to the whales. The last life-or-death battle of the conflict occurs deep in the ocean, where the elemental goodness of whales, and the technological ingenuity of humans, must come together to save the mutual inheritance of both species: a world that can be lived in.

From the Publisher

A gripping and beautifully crafted adventure-thriller, Mike Croft explores the human fascination for whales and themes of ecological peril to create a popular-fiction classic for our times.
From the author of White Man Falling, winner of the Goss First Novel Award
