Enigmatic billionaire Mitchell Chandler turns out obscene profits at his aquatic theme parks, driven by the spectacular killer whale performances. But when the beloved orca at Chandler’s Seattle park dies, activists have all the ammo they need to shut him down. If the news becomes public. Facing impending financial ruin, Chandler hatches a brazen plan: blackmail firebrand commercial fisherman, Zora Flynn, into secretly capturing a replacement whale – using Zora’s ailing mother as bait.
Meanwhile, a super species of orca surfaces in Puget Sound – creatures of mind-bending size, speed, and intelligence. As the world watches, awe-struck scientists race to unlock the secret behind the whales’ sudden arrival after millennia in hiding. Now entangled in both dramas, Zora turns to an unconventional cop, a tenacious reporter, and a mysterious shaman for help. This unlikely alliance soon makes a discovery far more ominous than anyone can possibly imagine.
EXCERPT CHAPTER 31
(Zora’s trusted friend, known as Houdini, encounters the monstrous orcas for the first time)
Then…the mighty whales appeared on the horizon. The creatures resembled giant gloss-black torpedoes – black as black velvet – and they were moving fast. Really fast! Houdini watched in awe, unable to grasp the towering height of the dorsal fins, the sheer size of their bodies, or their blinding speed. A killer whale, he knew, typically traveled at five to six miles per hour, occasionally making a spectacular dash of up to thirty miles per hour when pursuing prey. But these leviathans were moving at more than twice that speed, faster even than the cheetah, the world’s swiftest animal, land or sea.
It didn’t seem real.
