"Mariner's 26th escapade, written with crisp authority, abounds in Tonkin's trademark nautical action sequences. And the premise is his freshest and most viscerally appealing in years”- Kirkus Reviews.

An ambitious ecological experiment plunges Richard and Robin Mariner into deadly waters . . . 

Heritage Mariner and Greenbaum International have financed an ecological experiment to prove how swiftly rubbish can foul the oceans by dropping and tracking a plastic bottle into a Tokyo river. 

The bottle is filled with lottery tickets for extra publicity – one of which could be worth $55 million. Robin Mariner and Nic Greenbaum’s only child, Libby, will race each other across the Pacific to see who can reach the bottle first, but when it is discovered that it contains the winning ticket the experiment suddenly becomes part of a much deadlier game . . .

Praise for Peter Tonkin 

After The Ides

“The Ides is a testosterone-fuelled battle roar in a world of double-dealing and betrayal, where wits must be sharp and recovery time between violent encounters is brief. Peter Tonkin has infused a familiar narrative with excitement, energy and a delicious twist right at the very end.” — Mystery People

”Edge-of-the-seat terror” – Daily Post 

”Good technical detail, plus an exciting climax, makes this entertaining reading” – Publishing News
