Summary

Julian Finch, widower and fisherman, awakes to learn that the bodies of two colleagues have washed up on the beach of Drake Cove. The close-knit community is under fierce public scrutiny due to a long-standing tradition called "The Culling", the annual slaughter of pilot whales for consumption. An act which divides the nation. 

The suspects are the extreme animal rights group, the Fighters Against Animal Cruelty (FAAC), who go wherever the politics is trending. They've been harassing the small fishing town for many years, smashing up their boats and sending vicious hate mail. Tensions mount after a viral video, uploaded by the FAAC of Julian killing a pregnant whale, causes uproar online and in real life. In the aftermath, Julian becomes the victim of hate crime. 

In order to avoid further life-threatening attacks, Julian and his daughter take refuge in the home of Frank Blothio: ex-fisherman turned writer and political activist who does not have the best history with the animal rights movement, or Drake Cove as a whole. As Julian integrates into the Blothio way of life, he discovers heinous secrets and disturbing truths lurking beneath the skin of his hometown that will change his life forever.

Good story with unexpected twists

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this book, and the way that it begins is a fairly standard mystery/thriller opening. A fishing town where there is an annual 'cull' or harvest of pilot whales provides the backdrop. The central character is Jules, a fisherman who is also bringing up a 14 year old daughter. There is also a rather creepy animal rights group who are protesting against the cull and sometimes going further.
The story then unfolds with two fishermen from the village being killed and Jules' house being attacked, apparently by the animal rights group.
Jules and his daughter move in with a friend, Frank, who is also an animal rights activist, but not part of the group, and his 'niece' who is a fantastic swimmer and rather mysterious.
The story then goes on to reveal lots of dark secrets and that things are not what they seem and generally twists and turns in unexpected ways.
The narration of this book is excellent, in fact I would go so far as to say that it is probably the best narrated audio book that I have heard.
I have taken 1 star off the 'story' rating because of the excessive (in my opinion) amount of swearing, especially by the young characters.

I enjoyed the great narration of Jayson Baird

Jules is struggling to raise his daughter in the small English whaling community Drake’s Cove. The suspects are members of group of anti-whaling activists. Jules is caught on camera slicing open a pregnant whale, he and his daughter become targets in many more ways than one.





The close-knit community is under fierce public scrutiny due to a long-standing tradition called "The Culling", the annual slaughter of pilot whales for consumption. An act which divides the nation.
