The bestselling book that became the blockbuster film starring George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, and Diane Lane. In October 1991, three weather systems collided off the coast of Nova Scotia to create a storm of singular fury, boasting waves over one hundred feet high. Among its victims was the Gloucester, Massachusetts-based swordfishing boat the Andrea Gail, which vanished with all six crew members aboard. “The Perfect Storm” is a real-life thriller that will leave readers with the taste of salt air on their tongues and a sense of terror of the deep.
