Description

When journalist India Kane agrees to accompany a Greenpeace ship called Sundancer in its pursuit of a whaling fleet, she has no idea what awaits her. Buffeted by high winds and blinded by freezing fog, by the time they spot the huge tanker bearing down on them - it is simply too late. Eight crewmembers are lost. Ned, one of India's closest friends, is among them. When it emerges that the tanker that rammed Sundancer is unregistered - a kind of ghost ship, untraceable and unaccountable - India is determined to bring the owner of the vessel to justice. But first she must make the journey back to Jambouko Bay to break the news to Ellie, Ned's wife. Jambouko Bay is a desolate and deserted place. Famed for its progressive architecture and stunning views, it was once a symbol of hope and prosperity in the Australian outback. But now its population is a dying breed. Some say that it's Albert's curse - an Aborigine who once called upon the thunder god to protect their sacred land from desecration - and some say that it's the air, the very soil. As yet more members of the community fall ill, India starts piecing the puzzle together.What India discovers will take her on a journey to a dark and terrifying place. ..show more

Review quote

'Caroline Carver's books keep getting better... Black Tide is an exciting adventure with a memorable heroine.' -- Suzanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'An exciting and well-written tale, full of 'green' issues about contaminated waste, dangerous refrigerants and injustice to aborigines, which do not get in the way of the fast action.' -- Bernard Knight TANGLED WEB 'one of the brightest new crime stars' POISONED PEN 'Non-stop action... leaves little room for boredom.' MORNING STAR 'Make sure you've slipped on the lifejacket for this adventure on the high seas, as it moves at such a rate of knots it'll leave you reeling.' -- Alex Gordon PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 'the most entertaining romp I have read in a long time' SHERLOCKshow more
