The Mary Deare was a 6,000-ton freighter, torpedoed three times in two world wars, wrecked twice before. At the formal investigation into her loss, Higgins, her first mate, described her as "a floating death-trap of rattling rivets and clanging plates, a piece of leaking ironmongery taken off the junk heap of the China Sea.

"Hammond Innes, writing as always of the struggle of man against the elements, for the first time takes the most violent element of all for his protagonist. The sea thunders through the pages of this book. And in Gideon Patch, master of the Mary Deare, we have a character worthy of the element. This is a great sea story."
