Well-crafted and gripping...A painful and poignant narrative.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

From the Inside Flap
On October 1, 2015, the American container ship El Faro sailed straight into the eye of Hurricane Joaquin in the Bermuda Triangle and vanished. When all thirty-three aboard were lost, El Faro became the deadliest American maritime accident in more than a generation. Why did the huge ship, equipped with satellite communica-tions and sophisticated weather forecasting software, steam into the storm? Three miles down, deeper than the Titanic, the ship's black box held damning secrets, including twenty-six hours of conversations between captain and crew leading up to El Faro's final moments. Relying on extensive investigative reporting, as well as the words of the doomed mariners themselves, Rachel Slade unravels the mystery behind this tragedy.--Paste Magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
