About the Book
After a protracted leadership rest, America had emerged from its deep slumber and returned to its better, NASA-like, days of mandates, missions, and accomplishments. The rest of the planet, too, breathed a figurative sigh of relief that the America that spirited the western world after WWII was back in the role of global authority, abandoning its inward nationalistic period of sniping and civil unrest.

Then in 2026, rising from the depths off the coast of New England, Newtucket Island emerged and challenged the President of the United States to truly make a new isle “great.” Can it survive the difficulties with developing infrastructure, pressures from big money opportunists, the parochialism of local politics, a cynical alt-different political agenda, out of control autonomous ships, North Korean submarine interlopers, Arabian Sea pirates, aggrieved dolphins, and myriad geopolitical and oceanographic challenges?

    From the sinking of the El Faro to the Andrea Doria, vague explanations of "human error" have been given. Read this new expose that challenges the theory that captain & crew are the only cause of these tragedies. A common thread of greed, hubris, and miscalculation are woven into this close look at maritime disasters.
