Set in the near future - during a time of plummeting fish stocks, toxic algae blooms and jellyfish swarms - The Good Captain follows a group of radical environmentalists committed to a mission of extreme civil disobedience against the powers threatening to destroy the last of the world's marine life.

Led by the wild Rena - born and raised by the ocean - the crew engages in a high seas drama that contains all the thrill of a cat-and-mouse seafaring classic, while also offering a timely warning for the political classes that their negligence will not go unpunished.

Evoking a disturbing vision of what the world that might soon become - random, dangerous, surprising and sometimes even miraculous - The Good Captain is a gripping, confronting and truly unique novel.

"If you care about the ocean, about extinction, about deforestation, you'll find yourself immersed in this novel. With originality and wit, Sean Rabin asks: 'How far is too far?' when you're fighting to save the planet." - Jane Rawson, author of The History of Dreams and From the Wreck
