An engrossing story set in the 1990s but with its roots in the "fishing wars" of the 1960s and '70s. Then, foreign fleets, doubling as spy ships, hauled vast catches off the U.S. East Coast, bitterly resented by the fishermen whose livlihoods they were poaching. Woven into the realistic stories of fishermen on their boats is a mystery that spans a quarter of a century.

Kevin McCormick was a professional fisherman for more than two decades. A graduate of the University of Rhode Island, he holds two degrees in marine science.Review:
The Freedom Plant [is] a realistic chronicle of life aboard both American and Soviet fishing vessels during the Cold War. Set during the 1960s and '70s, when foreign fishing fleets, often doubling as spy ships, trolled the waters off the eastern coast of the United States, The Freedom Plant weaves together the experiences of New England fishermen, Soviet spies, the U.S. Navy and the Coast Guard by following the main character on a supposed quest to find the sister he lost duing an international incident. All may not be as it seems, however, since he could also be a Russian spy sent to exact revenge on a woman who escaped the Soviet fleet, and married an American fisherman. Writers [such as McCormick] don't just skim the surface; they dive deep. --The Baysider, Thursday, October 2, 2008
