Critical Praise

"A sea story in the grand tradition of Conrad and Melville, this shamelessly salty and unbearably exciting novel is a welcome reminder that imagination transports us where facts cannot, that adventure created by a master storyteller can make reality seem tame."

——Daily News

"The spirit of Joseph Conrad . . . haunts Philip Caputo's adventure-filled story."

——The New York Times Book Review

"A high seas classic combined with a mystery."

——San Francisco Chronicle
