Praise for The Last Ship

“Nevil Shute wrote a moving book, On the Beach, about the aftermath of a nuclear war…Now William Brinkley has used the same premise to tell and even more fascinating tale.”—The Wall Street Journal
“An extraoridincary novel of men at war, a superb portrtait of naval command, The Last Ship is a powerful and exciting novel you will not want to miss.”—The Washington Post

“Beautifully written…as if the narrator has set himself the task of preserving the language, of writing it down lest it be lost forever…Brinkley’s plot contains a series of unexpected reversals and the tale’s conclusion is unforgettably intense…A magnificent book.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“William Brinkley writes in expert detail about life on the sea…Readers will be engaged by this ambitious tale, which draws on the legacies of Melville and Conrad but is full of its own nuclear-age quandaries and horrors.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Brinkley’s tale has humanity, thoughtfulness and one inspired complication: women.”—Time
