The ocean itself is wreaking havoc on humans and their technological intrusions. The world governments create a group to figure out what is going on and how to stop it, peacefully, of course. Oops, secret agendas, jellyfish swarms, and orcas waiting for a snack as other whales sink boats. It is thought-provoking, although a bit predictable as to who's left at the end.

Catchy plot, a well researched book, crammed with cool scientific ideas and discussions, very educational, makes you think about life on this planet and how we fit in.
