“A sinister version of The Perfect Storm. Thrilling.”—Sunday Times (UK) For readers of The Perfect Storm, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and Into the Wild There’s nothing that armchair adventure lovers relish more than a gripping true story of disaster and heroism, and Last Man Off delivers all that against a breathtaking backdrop of icebergs and killer whales. On June 6, 1998, twenty-three-year-old Matt Lewis had just started his dream job as a scientific observer aboard a deep-sea fishing boat in the waters off Antarctica. As the crew haul in the line for the day, a storm begins to brew. When the captain vanishes and they are forced to abandon ship, Lewis leads the escape onto three life rafts, where the battle for survival begins.
Matt Lewis is a trained marine biologist with an MSc with distinction in Marine and Fisheries Science. He now lives with his wife and two children in Aberdeen.
“A story that reminds us of the unforgiving nature of the sea and the courage that lies within the everyday heroes that have found themselves in hell.”—Bear Grylls, bestselling author of Mud, Sweat, and Tears “Reads like a sinister version of The Perfect Storm… Thrilling, compelling, unsettling, rewarding.”—Sunday Times “A dramatic tale of survival in one of the most brutal situations on earth. Feels like reading the diary of a doomed man…so personal and chillingly real; totally takes you there in a way that is not always comfortable.”—Steve Backshall, Deadly 60
