An insider look at the efforts by the Sea Shepherd group to halt whaling in the Southern Ocean. At times this reads like the extension of a magazine article that it is, with long passages on nothing much at all happening as the group's ship, the FARLEY MOWAT, searches for the fleet and a final chapter that feels like it goes from 0-60 as he wraps up the book. Without spoiling too much, Heller might have had a better book if he'd tagged along in 2006 than 2005!

While adamently opposed to whaling, Heller does a good job of staying neutral in his opinions of Sea Shepherds tactics and lets the reader decide if their "Anti-Greenpeace" approach is the right one and if their leader, Paul Watson, is crazy like a fox or just place crazy.

Like other Peter Heller books I've read, this one turns an extremely exciting subject into a hard to follow and disjointed interesting story.
