The book is about the 1991 Halloween Nor'easter that hit North America in October 1991, and features the crew of the fishing boat Andrea Gail, based out of Gloucester, Massachusetts, who were lost 575 miles at sea during the severe conditions while fishing for swordfish. Also in the book is the story about the rescue of the three-person crew of the sailboat Satori in the Atlantic waters during the storm, by the US Coast Guard Cutter Tamaroa.
