I’m in the middle of reading my galley review copy of Deadliest Sea, a new book due out on June 1st. It’s about the sinking of the Alaska Ranger in the Bering Sea in 2008, and the rescue efforts by the Coast Guard.

I plan to do a full review soon. But, getting into it, I want to praise the author Kalee Thompson for her hardcore reporting. A former editor at Popular Science and National Geographic Adventure, she puts all her skills to use in describing all that went down in great detail.
