A William Gibson kind of look at a situation where people interact more in cyberspace than they do in the real world. A team of people are hired by a Japanese fishing company to help sway world opinion toward their policy. One of the team goes to the Antarctic to check things out, and disappears, so another of the team members goes to find him. She does, but then his rescue helicopter crashes and he dies. In the meantime, the team finds that the Japanese company has misled them, and their goals are not what was explained to the team. A story with plenty of intrigue.
