More Information
The third book?after Highliners and Breakers?in McCloskey?s thrilling saga of life in America?s most dangerous profession?commercial fishing.

RAIDERS covers 1982?1984, heady years for Alaska fishermen, as they wrested control of their fishing grounds from foreign fleets. Hank is caught in the midst of this turmoil, for he is under contract to a Japanese fishing company that bailed him out of debt at a stern price. Hank?s attempt to win his freedom without losing his honor takes him to Japan and back, while his independent wife Jody tries her hand at being captain of her own fishing boat in perilous waters. RAIDERS vividly portrays the risks and rewards of the ocean-going life; as the St. John?s Newfoundland Navigator said of McCloskey?s series: ?These novels can be read simply as an exciting story with great characters, or, in a deeper sense, as a pleasant way to gain an understanding of the lives of the professional fishing community.?

William McCloskey?s best-selling novel Highliners attained cult classic status for its exuberant, authentic depiction of the commercial fishermen of western Alaska. In RAIDERS, McCloskey picks up where the sequel Breakers left off, continuing the story of fishing captain Hank Crawford.
