Should he heed the stranger's warning, and stay away from the exotic beauty he had just shared a drink with?
Hudson Drake peeled the label from his beer bottle as he sat in the small bar in the town of Taiji. An image of her perfect smile flooded his thoughts. His track record with women wasn't great but he found her desire to put a stop to the killing of dolphins, captivating.
In this eco-thriller, Hudson and his friends travel to Japan to peacefully protest against the annual dolphin slaughter in the infamous killing cove. A barbaric fishing practice that has been going on right under the noses of the world's media, and together, they mean to expose it. While protesting, he meets the mysterious, beautiful Eleena. His world is turned upside down as she tries to lure him down a path from which there would be no return.
