The True Story of the World's Longest Sea ChaseBook - 2018
"December, 2014: In the forbidding waters off Antarctica, Captain Hammarstedt of the Bob Barker embarks on a voyage unlike any seen before. Across ten thousand miles of hazardous seas, Hammarstedt's crew will relentlessly pursue the 'Thunder': an infamous illegal fishing ship, for what will become the longest chase in maritime history. Wanted by Interpol, the Thunder has for years evaded justice: hunting endangered species and accumulating millions in profits. Even as seasoned journalists, the authors cannot anticipate what the chase will uncover, as the wake of the 'Thunder' leads them onto the trail of criminal kingpins, rampant corruption, modern slavery, and an international community content to turn a blind eye. Very soon, catching 'Thunder' becomes not only a chase but a pursuit to the truth itself -- and a symbolic race to preserve the well-being of our planet."--Cover flap.
