In Kincaid and the Legal Massacre will Kincaid's wildlife experience and dedication be enough to save the Northern Fur Seal from extinction?
James Kincaid, wildlife biologist, is assigned to the Pribilof Islands to help the United States Treasury Department control the illegal killing and halt the extinction of the northern fur seal. James and his Inuit guide, Moaka, arrive on the islands from the North Slopes of Alaska to discover the northern fur seal is being slaughtered by several countries, including illegal freelance sealers from the United States.
The sealing industry is very profitable and the fur from the northern fur seal is in big demand around the world. As men risk their lives for the bounty of the islands, the challenges for James and Moaka become increasingly dangerous. The story combines historical events with intrigue, romance, and high adventure, and has James and Moaka engaged in a struggle to restrain the massacring of fur seals while trying to rescue their wives from freelance kidnappers.
