Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of Blood and Money: A haunting true story of three people locked in a fierce struggle against time and the sea—and each other.

In July 1973, Bob Tininenko; his wife, Linda; and his brother in-law, Jim Fisher, set sail from Tacoma, Washington, on a thirty-one-foot trimaran down the West Coast to Costa Rica. The journey was expected to take a matter of weeks, but ten days into the cruise, the party encountered a freak storm off the coast of northern California. When gale-force winds and fifty-foot waves capsized their boat, the voyage became a nightmare.
 
For seventy-two days, the trio was lost at sea. Challenged by nature and compromised by a bitter rivalry, their courage and will to live was put to the ultimate test. Jim, the owner and skipper of the boat, was a devout fundamentalist whose recognition of God’s will in every event brought him into increasing conflict with his brother-in-law. As the two men battled to take control of a dire situation, Linda kept a secret that would lead to heartrending tragedy.
 
A “hair-raising” (Houston Chronicle) account of shipwreck and survival and a searing portrait of faith without reason, Lost! is an unforgettable true story from “a writer of tremendous power and achievement” (Detroit Free Press).

Amazing tale!

An incredible story. I read the entire book in one sitting.

Lost!

A truly fascinating well written book. Especially since James Fisher was a teacher I had a crush on when I took German from him my junior and senior years at Auburn Academy. I’m surprised at it though because I never thought of him as being a religious fanatic. I wish he could of lived to tell the story as he saw it.

Incredible!

One of the most fascinating stories of survival ever. I was part of the C130 crew that transported Bob and Jim to Honolulu from Midway Island. I talked to Bob for about 5 minutes before departure and was stunned by his mental strength after this ordeal. He is truly an incredible person.
