Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 033034241X, Paperback)The Mary Deare was a 6000-ton freighter, which for forty years had tramped the seas, been shipwrecked and torpedoed during the war. Then one night she emerges from the Bay of Biscay after severe gales and is propelled into the newspaper headlines as a ship of mystery and tragedy.

The battered hulk of a huge ship looms out of the stinging spray of a furious gale. Only one man, half-mad, remains aboard, working without sleep or sustenance to save her from sinking. But this man is no hero, and this ship was not meant to be saved. As Hammond Innes' classic tale moves from desperate struggles on the sea to a nail-biting courtroom controversy, the murky truth about the last voyage of the Mary Deare finally comes to light.
