From the cover: “This is a book about the sea. It is also a book about a fishing boat, the four men who sailed her, and, as the title indicates, a storm. None of the four elements in this tense story can be separated from the others — the lives, as well as the livelihoods, of Mungo Starke and his companions are linked to the fate of their boat, the fate of their boat to the skill of her crew and the temper of the Scottish seas. On this occasion, however, bad luck, mischance, carelessness, call it what you will, sets in motion a train of consequences that are not only dramatic and awe-inspiring in themselves, but also serve to reveal the very natures of these men when faced with disaster to their boat and death to themselves at the mercy of the sea.”
