Publisher's Summary

A crippled cargo ship drifts helplessly in the face of an oncoming hurricane-force storm. On board, a passenger whose presence means the world is watching. Only the skill, determination and raw courage of a lifeboat crew and the British military forces despatched to save them offer any hope of survival. But set against the savagery of the Atlantic even that might not be enough....

Great storytelling

Mike Lunnon-Wood is the master of modern tales of derring do by British armed forces. In this book he turns to UK's equivalent of the US coastguard - the Lifeboatmen braving stormy seas to rescue the crew of a ship whose passengers include the prime minister's son. As usual for Lunnon-Wood the writing is Grippsatisfyingly tech

Exciting stuff!

I've listened to many audiobooks but this is the first time I've been moved enough to write a review.
I listened to it virtually non stop.
The multi faceted scene was set well and easy to follow. As the drama started to unfold, wave upon wave (pun not really intended) of unexpected events ramped up the tension, I was on the edge of my seat. Caught up in the story, I could literally feel the emotion like I was there.
I can't say anymore without spoiling the ending but you must 'read' this book it's awesome! As are the RNLI, much respect for all that they do, have done and will do in the face of great danger to save the lives of strangers.

They that go down to the sea in ships

or "little boats paid for by donations", or fly over it in search and rescue operations, a Storm, and Murphy. Lots of Murphy.
I first read this story in paperback from the Library (I was still reading at 02.00 the next morning) got it out a time or two more, picked up a copy 2nd hand and am now really glad to have the electronic and audio versions. l like it that much - it's about people and courage in the sort of situation that gives me nightmares.
When you've listened, go on the RNLI website to see the videos. And leave a donation to help with another little boat and those who crew her.

This story was quite emotional at times, both joyful and very sad.

Edge of your seat stuff!

....and breathe. I took a punt on this one. I was sceptical as to whether a book about lifeboats was really going to last beyond the first few chapters. I was wrong. This is really good. The plot is original, the action builds at a enticing pace, and goes from dramatic to insane. The writing is superb and the narrator puts you right

Terrific and moving story.

Well narrated with a nice measured tone, all characters brought to life. Made me look up things on the Internet regarding lifeboats and shipwrecks. Totally absorbing.

Brilliant Book

Expertly researched, gripping story. Fantastic narration. Whilst fiction, it is a true testament to the bravery of the RNLI. Highly recommended. I'm off to get the next book!

Powerful

A powerful and a wonderful nod to the men and women of the RNLI who do so much to keep us safe.

The Author had clearly spent time diligently researching the book and it showed as the story progressed.
