Los Angeles Times Book Review
A gripping account...Lost At Sea is a better book than Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm, even more thrilling, more mysterious.
Dillon meticulously recreates the events leading up to the 1983 capsizing of the Americus and Altair...[and] artfully chronicles the lives of the lost fishermen and their families.
The Washington Post Book World
A meticulously detailed narrative, pieced together with the deft touch of a suspense writer — a fine accomplishment.
The Denver Post
Patrick Dillon's deftly written Lost at Sea is more than just another man-vs.-the-sea story. It's an engrossing, evenhanded look at how greed, negligence, naivete and downright stupidity can lead to tragedy when man and nature collide.
