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.

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.
