Creatures they had hunted near to extinction Scattered humans lived peacefully in fl. I love this book Alan Dean Foster perhaps because of his film degree writes such vividly colorful easily visualized places and people This is one of the most beautiful planets in his SF universe It is a world of all water all ocean It was given over to the remaining whales and dolphins of Earth in an attempt at recompense for their near extinction Shortly before they were all gone it was discovered that they had all been or less sentient all along which made this near genocide So collectively the cetaceans formerly of Earth own this planet that they were transported to it is entirely theirs and humans who live and work there do so on artificially built islands and on sufferance The sperm whales and orcas interestingly are the only euivalent intelligences to humanity the dolphins are less and the baleen whales are like great oxen with a little language The clever plot is at bottom a murder mystery something is destroying the artificial islands and all inhabitants and contents thereof so a famous marine biologist who has never been to the planet before is brought in to help solve this She brings her very talented musician daughter as her assistant because she has trained in biology under protest due to being still under her charismatic mother's thumb as an adult On the planet they begin investigation aided by two men one a local cop that likes the mother one rather mysterious individual who prefers the daughter Every angle is explored until they finally find the thing that does not fit and barely do they survive it The showdown climax is awesome and after it is a final epilogue that totally surprised me the first time I read it and that I am beyond thrilled by It makes me smile

As a teenager I read a ton of Alan Dean Foster Almost all of the Humanx books and then some Pip and Flinx stayed in my memory the Icerigger books a book that I can‘t remember the title of and can‘t find and this I have an obsession with books set underwater anyway So a few decades later I decided to read some of them again to see if I still like them Well I just finished this I realized two things—I remembered almost nothing of this book and what I thought I remembered didn‘t happen So either I made it up or I was thinking of yet another book SighSo how was it Well the language felt a little dated But the book is almost 40 years old so that is ok The daughter was hugely annoying her musical instrument was pretty interesting sadly not really explored and pretty obviously a tool The outcome felt morally pretty suspect and oh well it was ok
