Jason Culp's crisp narration matches the journalistic tone of Urbina's audiobook, but this is not a dense, dry stream of facts. Urbina's work focuses on the murky, complicated nature of international maritime law, often absent or unenforced, and the brutal environmental injustice at sea that results. Listeners should prepare for a vivid, often jarring listening experience. Urbina reports from ship decks while vessels are in pursuit of illegal fishing boats. In other passages, he risks danger searching for criminal captains guilty of enslaving crew members. Commercial cruise ships are found dumping oil illegally; crew members are dumped in rafts and left to die in the open ocean; Somalian pirates are ever present. Culp's delivery is clear and direct, matching the unsettling nature of Urbina's comprehensive reporting. S.P.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
