"Spectacular in every way--an intense, immersive deep dive into a wild, dangerous, and unknown world, written with the pace and appeal of a great thriller . . . This is nonfiction at its very best."--Lee Child, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels

"The story [Tristram] Korten tells is impressively multifaceted, exploring everything from timely issues such as climate change to timeless themes such as man's struggle against the ocean's fury."--Miami New Times

"Korten does an excellent job of describing the nearly indescribable power and ferocity of major hurricanes. . . . Korten brings readers inside the world of the rescue crews whose incredible courage so often makes the difference between life and death in catastrophes like this one. . . . Into the Storm reads like more than just the chronicle of one maritime disaster--and may be a warning claxon against the possibility of more such disasters coming this hurricane season."--Open Letters Review

"Readers of ocean drama will snap up Korten's work. . . . [He] gets to tell a complete story; impressively, he keeps it suspenseful."--The Free Lance-Star

"An incredible story and a first-rate adventure . . . Tristram Korten delivers us into a thrilling and dangerous world, strapping us in beside everyday heroes who confront forces of nature even Hollywood can't re-create. Into the Storm is a triumph of reporting and you-are-there writing that becomes a deeper tale--with more implications about our own lives--with every chapter."--Robert Kurson, New York Times bestselling author of Shadow Divers

"Riveting stuff--a terrifying but also inspiring story of disaster and resilience on the high seas. This is as close as I ever need to get to being aboard a ship in a hurricane. Riveting stuff."--Josh Dean, author of The Taking of K-129
