Here’s Yorick, Dr. Mann and 355 on their way to Australia, a side trip as they cross the ocean in search of Ampersand, who was kidnapped in San Francisco. Ampersand, Yorick’s capuchin helper monkey, holds the key to Yorick’s immunity from the plague that killed all Y-chromosome containing mammals.
There’s a fair amount of drama on the ship: Dr. Mann and 355 have a romantic rendez-vous. Yorick and the ship’s captain come close. And the Australian Navy adds to the tension since The Whale may be smuggling elicit goods.
Highly recommended as the middle of the series.
