"A Nantucket sleigh ride of a read, guaranteed to thrill and amaze."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Marc Songini has crafted a magnificent tale of perseverance in the face of the declining whaling industry in the mid-1800s....The Lost Fleet is a narrative tour-de-force.
--Linda Rosencrance, author of Murder at Morses Pond, and An Act of Murder
"The Lost Fleet is rich in detail, broad in scope and brilliant in its ability to capture a lost era that eerily parallels some of the military misadventures of today. Simply stated, this is the best book of its kind since A Perfect Storm."
--Jon Land, author of The Fires of Midnight and The Walls of Jericho
