water that destroys them The main characters are a marine microbiologist and his ex wife, a whale sonar expert, and a doctor who treated some of the victims The race to identify and neutralize the killer before it decimates the population in the Seattle area is complicated by an oncoming storm and the interference by other interested partiesdon t want to give it away, but there is plenty of intrigue and technical detail to keep it interesting This book is hard readingI have a very strong science background and even that didn t help with much of the terminology This is the first work of fiction I ve ever read that required a glossary I think so muchcould have been done with this topic The author spendstime describing the ships and the gear than he does developing his plot Not really a fan of this one and won t be reading anyfrom James Powlik anytime soon.
