This is an auction for DEATH OF THE RAINBOW WARRIOR by Michael King. review:

"Michael King’s account of the bombing of the Rainbow Warrier reads like a spy thriller. In 1985 the French government was still performing atmospheric atomic tests in the South Pacific. However Greenpeace was making it increasingly difficult for them. With the Rainbow Warrier as the lead ship, French naval frigates were surrounded by a flotilla of protest boats if they got anywhere near the islands used as test sites. This led to growing concerns the vessels might not depart the area during the next test, with the French government being responsible for the deaths of their owners. French divers planted two bombs on the hull of the boat - timed to go off in sequence - to enable all but one of the passengers (a photographer who went back for his camera) to safely evacuate. Within days New Zealand police had tracked down and arrested three of the French spies responsible for the bombing, though a number escaped the country. Predictably the Mitterand government lied about the incident until the three in custody were convicted for murder. Eventually an arrangement was made to transfer them to a French prison. They arrived on French soil to a hero's welcome and never saw one day inside a French jail. The international scandal was instrumental in bringing French nuclear testing in the Pacific to a halt."
