Description

"A sinister version of The Perfect Storm . . . Thrilling." -Sunday Times (UK) For readers of The Perfect Storm, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and Into the Wild There's nothing that armchair adventure lovers relish more than a gripping true story of disaster and heroism, and Last Man Off delivers all that against a breathtaking backdrop of icebergs and killer whales. On June 6, 1998, twenty-three-year-old Matt Lewis had just started his dream job as a scientific observer aboard a deep-sea fishing boat in the waters off Antarctica. As the crew haul in the line for the day, a storm begins to brew. When the captain vanishes and they are forced to abandon ship, Lewis leads the escape onto three life rafts, where the battle for survival begins.

Professional reviews

"Matt Lewis is newly graduated as a marine biologist from a Scottish university and unemployed when he gets a job as an observer aboard the SUDUR HAVID, a South African ship fishing for Chilean sea bass in Antarctic waters. Narrator Malcolm Hamilton delivers Lewis's sickened inner voice at his first sight of the rust bucket of a ship. It looks no better on the inside, what with missing and locked-up safety equipment, cramped quarters, and tension among crew members. Hamilton deftly captures the accent of the South African crew members. But it is his narration of the hours spent aboard leaky life rafts that is particularly effective and may induce a certain amount of roiling nausea in the listener, even if Lewis himself doesn't get seasick.
