We may not know the details and procedures of what a professional mariner does, but we know what they are supposed to do: Get their crew and their ship from point A to point B without anyone dying or the ship sinking.

It doesn't take a professional mariner to see that didn't happen here.

I am half way through this book, and it is excellent. The voice data recorder (VDR) was retrieved from the wreck so the actual conversations from the Bridge and ER are incorporated. The book also does a very good job covering many other aspects related to boats, ships, weather, and the history of maritime commerce. A very sad story.

Coincidentally, I'm also 1/2 way through this book as of today. And I have to say, it's very much worth the read. As Fletcher500 said, Excellent.

He described some of the solid aspects of the book. I would also add it is much more "meaty" in detail, history, and concept than the average tale of this type. She avoids trying to make heroes or tear-jerk personal back stories of the lost mariners, and really focuses on the issues, events, and context.

I am not familiar with her writing, but I am going to pay attention for her name in the future.
