This is an auction for DANGER ZONE by Maurice Shadbolt.

"'The setting of Maurice Shadbolt's dramatic new novel is vast - the third of our planet we call the Pacific. So is its theme - the survival of man in our time. It is the story of protest yacht Moana Nui and the four men...and perhaps a dead woman... who sail her into the French nuclear test zone around Mururoa Atoll. They are:

* Rex Stone, elderly onetime war hero, seeking himself as a warrior again;

* Blair Hawkins, owner and skipper, a trendy tycoon with a love of headlines;

* Peter Lee, navigator and Pacific wanderer; and

* Stephen West, liberal lawyer, haunted by his second marital failure, and even more literally haunted by his dead first wife as the voyage lengthens ..."
