This riveting tale should be required reading for every tourist who visits Maine. Author Peter Landesmann's story of a true-life disaster, set on the coast of Maine, offers clear-eyed depictions of the lives of fishermen and mill-town workers struggling to survive the choices they have made. The mysterious disappearance of a charter boat filled with families serves as the centerpiece, and Landesmann spins his story with sharp prose, delightful turns of phrase, and stunningly accurate depictions of life in a company town and an island fishing community. Be prepared for many late nights, and take the time to reread chapters for the sheer joy of Landesmann's language
