An exciting sailing story that combines sailing with mystery and intrigue, Black Fish refers to fish that are protected species but are being caught and sold by criminal elements. This leads to an adventure of mystery and murder combining the elements of skullduggery at sea (with ecological overtones), a strong but flawed hero with all kinds of baggage, a charismatic but enigmatic female foil, and, in this case, lots of very black humor, which gives the book an extra dimension. The protagonist Gavin Chance is a former policeman and Olympic sailor and now a yacht broker. His business partner has disappeared, there's a corpse on a stolen trawler, and he may be next. All this leads to an adventure of crime, intrigue, poachers, and killers on both land and the high seas.
