Description: The US-flagged container ship El Faro sank on 1 October 2015 on a voyage from Jacksonville, Florida USA, to Puerto Rico in Hurricane Joaquin. All 33 crew were lost.
The US government spent US$3 million searching for and acquiring the vessel voice data recorder.
Rachel Slade, a journalist, used the transcript of the voice data recorder and research to write her first book.
Slade aimed to identify the factors leading to the tragedy: outdated and inaccurate weather reports, the chain of command, inadequate and ou dated equipment, and problems with the economics of cargo shipping and the industry.
