This book will only add to Michael Tougias' growing reputation as a writer of real sea disasters. Add this to the author's other two books, Ten Hours til Dawn and Fatal Forecast and you have three great additions to your library of maritime disaster books. Unfortunately, Michael can not research and write his books as fast as we can read them, so I now await the completion of his next sea story.

A compelling reconstruction of events that occured 58 years ago. The authors relate the story of an exciting scenario that ties together the background of the rescued and rescuers. I recommend this book to anyone who is involved with sailing, power-boating, and is interested in available safety umbrella.

Amazing that two ships went down off Cape Cod on the same night. Not only two ships but two of the same types of ships and they split in half! The Coast Guard was so brave in their rescue attempts, a must read. Enjoy.

Bought the book to read about the US Coast Guards greatest rescue and had to wade through page after page of nonsence to get to the story. Local history back to the 1650's and childhood information on nonessential individuals. Don't waste your money.
