"A riveting story told by a superb writer." ― Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember

This is not a dry account of what happened on that day in September of 1954 when the Collins Line's grandest transatlantic passenger vessel sank off the coast of Newfoundland, but one told with flair by a writer who understands the mayhem of tragedy inherent in any such tale.

Just sixteen months after the SS Arctic sank, the Collins Line's SS Pacific disappeared without trace on a transatlantic crossing.
