Ferrigno (The Horse Latitudes, LJ 2/1/90) continues the adventures of investigative reporter Quinn. Judge Teddy Krammerson, Quinn's stepfather, is brutally murdered, apparently by neo-Nazis. At the same time, Teddy's old friend, Joe "Steps" Sarducci, has been released from prison, much to Quinn's surprise; his stepfather had told him that Joe had died 28 years ago. Teddy's murderers are Rick, a flamboyant, psychotic hairdresser, and quietly intense Hugo, who happens to be Joe's driver. As Quinn investigates the murder, he discovers other connected deaths and finds himself looking into his own past‘at his tenuous relationship with Teddy, at the identity of Joe Steps, and at Ellis Fontayne, a powerful defense attorney whom Quinn recognizes from his childhood. Good characterizations mark this light, entertaining novel. Recommended for fiction collections.‘Stacie Browne Chandler, Newbury Coll. Lib., Brookline, Mass.

One of the world's leading marine biologists, Earle has swum with humpback whales in Hawaii and dolphins in the Bahamas; she has made a record-breaking, untethered dive to 1250 feet. As chief scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, she inspected oil spills off the Alaskan coast and in the Persian Gulf. Here she reviews the history of ocean exploration and the development of submersible diving systems, which her company builds. Earle recounts worldwide diving adventures, looks at French and Japanese research in deep-ocean engineering and describes the Tokyo fish market. She examines current maritime policies, pollution and the depletion of wild ocean populations, and she offers a blueprint for change. ``The most frightening and dangerous threat to the health of oceans,'' she writes, ``is ignorance.'' Her book is a giant first step toward dispelling that threat. Photos not seen by PW. BOMC selection. (Apr.)
