Ballsy, firebrand, in your face—Dr. Jan Everett needs to be that and more in the gut wrenching world she lives: the bloody heart of the whale war. She is also America’s first lady. Her militancy clashes with the President’s driving ambition. Their teetering marriage slams the rocks when she uncovers his backroom deal with Japan to avert a trade war and jumpstart his stumbling re-election campaign. He permits the Japanese to secretly kill 1872 blue whales stranded in the Bering Sea—a hunt that will yield meat worth $1.5 billion, or 50 years supply.
Enraged, Jan hijacks the ship and services of Arlov Vesprhein, a notorious, ruthless but charming whaling pirate for an epic rescue on the high seas: a whale drive from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
Shadowing the drive is the Japanese armada of killer boats led by Captain Yamamura, a legend, whose tenacity equals his hatred for the first lady. Stampeding leviathans, a failing marriage, Jan’s own growing attraction for Vesprhein, the lurking menace of mutiny, a bounty within the White House to assassinate her, the President’s failing campaign, a financial meltdown to transfer power from America to Asia, Jan’s daring plan to sink the Rising Sun— all dovetail into a political, financial, and ecological hurricane that is at once exciting, tragic, shocking, and real!
Save The Whales Please is not for the faint of heart. Whaling is big business and a pressure point in global politics and finance. Fact intersects fiction for an eye-opening journey into a pitiless world of unnecessary savagery.
Save The Whales Please is the novel by Konrad Karl Gatien & Sreescanda
