Editorial Reviews


Well-crafted and gripping...A painful and poignant narrative.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

An extraordinary piece of reporting. Slade has accomplished what very few authors ever attempt: to explain the loss of a ship with no survivors. I tore through it like a novel.

-- "John Konrad, author of Fire on the Horizon"

A masterful page-turning account...leaves you profoundly moved by the crew's dedication and grit, and infuriated at the disturbing conditions that led to this tragedy.

-- "Ben Mezrich, author of The Accidental Billionaires"

The one account I've read that solves the riddle of El Faro convincingly and thoroughly...Superbly written, this deserves a place on the bookshelf of modern maritime classics.

-- "Robert Frump, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Until the Sea Shall Free Them"

Pulse-pounding...The author does solid work giving voice to the thirty-three mariners who lost their lives...A taut, chilling, and emotionally charged retelling of a doomed ship's final days.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.
