Noah's dad can be very impulsive and when he finds out someone is illegally dumping sewage in the sea, spoiling the beaches and endangering the wildlife, he sinks the boat responsible.

With their Dad in prison, it is up to Noah and little sister Abbey to put together a plan to clear his name and stop the dumping. Noah's plan proves to be both difficult and dangerous, so it's a relief to have the help of some unusual and mysterious allies.

This is an engaging and light-hearted thriller about issues that matter - justice, family and the environment. The Paine family are well-drawn and likeable, the pace easy and flowing and the villains not quite as wicked as we suspected.
