I enjoyed the array of characters in this book, from the responsible, to the whacko, to those who were there under duress because their alternative had been to go to prison. As usual, the characters were engaging in and of themselves, which enhanced the plot. Even the young Japanese pilot, Naoki Tamuro, was a sympathetic character even though he was the enemy.
I recommend this book not only because it is an interesting and engaging story, but because it will help give the reader a much better understanding of the challenges of the US Merchant Marine service, the US Navy role in protecting them, and the degree of danger they worked in as they transported goods for the military services during World War II.
