December, 2014: In the forbidding waters off Antarctica, Captain
Hammarstedt of the Bob Barker embarks on a voyage unlike any seen
before. Across ten thousand miles of hazardous seas, Hammerstedt's crew
will relentlessly pursue the Thunder - an infamous illegal fishing ship -
for what will become the longest chase in maritime history. Wanted by
Interpol, the Thunder has for years evaded justice: accumulating
millions in profits, hunting endangered species and ruthlessly
destroying ocean habitats.
The authors follow this incredible expedition from the beginning. But even as seasoned journalists, they cannot anticipate what the chase will uncover, as the wake of the Thunder leads them to trail of criminal kingpins, rampant corruption, modern slavery and an international community content to turn a blind eye. Very soon, catching Thunder becomes more than a chase but a pursuit of the truth itself and a symbolic race to preserve the well-being of our planet.
A Scandinavian bestseller, Catching Thunder is a remarkable true story of courage and perseverance, and a wake-up call to act against the destruction of our environments.
