"In the waters of the tortuous coastline fringing this great, bleak and barren island Dale meets a giant Indian, Jackatar Arubaa, last of the nomadic tribe of Jackatars who migrated from eastern seaboard provinces a hundred years earlier. The wasted, unconscious bodyof a Portuguese seaman, found adrift in a lifeboat and nursed for months i n the hospital at Twillingate, far-north fishing village, starts a train ofexciting events that leads Dale into another action-filled investigation. The death of the Portuguese seaman, the flight of the giant Indian and the rapid disapperance of key witnesses takes Dale from the historic city of St.John's to the ice-fields off the Labrador coast and into the centre of theannual sealhunt where intrigue and foul play hold sway. "It's not only a t hrilling story of police work but also gives an insight into the backgroundof Newfoundland, the operations of that international crossroads, Gander A irport, in the wilderness, and a colorful story of the grim business of hunting seals below the Arctic circle." - from the dj.flap.
