Editorial Reviews

Review

“The authors take readers on a journey as they seek to come face-to-face with those profiting from poaching, and realise the challenges involved in bringing them to justice.” ―South China Morning Post

“A true story that reads like a spy novel, peppered with scary organized crime villains, charismatic environmental activists and Interpol agents, and enough tidbits about sailing treacherous seas, commercial fishing, and endangered species to satisfy the most dedicated nautical adventure fan.” ―
5/5* Foreword Reviews

“This 110-day, round-the-world pursuit of a rogue trawler reads like a noir thriller ... recorded with flair and precision. The book promises all the pleasures of a crime novel, but it is after bigger game.” ―
5/5* Telegraph

“A gripping story ... A clarion call for those who want to save our seas.” ―
National Geographic Traveller

“This is a modern pirate story, but the plunder isn't pieces of eight – it's the Patagonian Toothfish, as valuable as narcotics … A solid piece of collaborative journalism.” ―
Sydney Morning Herald

“True adventure, life and death moments, and real life heroism: what reader could ask for more?” ―
Ingrid Newkirk, President, PETA

“Engdal and Sæter are to journalism what Jagger and Richards are to rock and roll – sexy, irreverent and brilliant.” ―
Luke Harding, Guardian journalist and author of The Snowden Files

“This is the story of our time: the blind destruction of the oceans and our ecosphere, and the actions of those with the courage to stand up and confront it.” ―
Peter Heller, author of The Whale Warriors and Celine

“The pursuit of the
Thunder has become celebrated folklore by those of us fighting to protect our oceans. This is a captivating story, one which highlights the weaknesses in the global system but also, ultimately, gives us hope.” ―Tony Long, CEO, Global Fishing Watch
