"'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 ..."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Maurice Shadbolt (1932-2004) was a major New Zealand fiction writer and playwright. He published numerous novels and collections of short fiction, as well as novellas, non-fiction, and a play. His writing often drew on his own family history. Shadbolt won several fellowships and almost every major literary prize, some more than once. He was capped Honorary Doctor of Literature by the University of Auckland in 1997.
