Sally is a blue whale calf captured by the US Navy after her mother was killed by orcas (killer whales). She is raised and trained for military purposes by the Navy.

Jo is a career US Navy officer. She is in her mid-twenties and has specialised in marine biology and submarine warfare.

Paul is a thirty-something British doctor and single handed yacht sailor competing in a round-the-world yacht race.

All three are brought together under extraordinary circumstances in the year 2025 and share an adventure in the Southern Hemisphere against a backdrop of ever-deteriorating relations between America and China and an increasingly dangerous world.

Ted Filston was born in Buckinghamshire, where he met his wife, Jean. They moved to Devon in 1969 and have been there ever since, except for a six-year spell when they lived in Brittany.


Laboratory technician, local government officer, shopkeeper, architectural designer, and building surveyor are occupations Ted has performed in his diverse career, and such wide experience has helped in his new pastime, writing.


His interests include a lifetime passion for riding and restoring classic motorcycles, sailing and kayaking, flying in light aircraft and gliders, and many others, indulged by the ever-supportive and patient Jean.
