About this title


Every sailor who is a reader and every reader who sometimes dreams of the sea loves to be enchanted by sea stories. In this book every story is true, and each is brilliantly told. A new liner vanishes without leaving a trace of wreckage to suggest her fate; a derelict abandoned near Samoa poses the tantalizing question-what happened to crew and passengers? A man is swallowed by a whale and miraculously survives. A lone cloud on a balmy spring day sends a vessel to the bottom with heavy loss of life; a series of ill-fated coincidences causes an ammunition ship to blow up shatteringly at Bombay. Could Commander Crabb still be alive and in Russia? Why did Donald Crowhurst disappear during a round-the-world sailing race? Do the strange underwater structures found near the Bahamas suggest the re-emergence of Atlantis? These any many other mysteries form the ingredients of this compulsively readable book.
