Publisher's Summary

Morgan Andrew Robertson (1861-1915) was a popular American author of short stories and novels who claimed to have been the inventor of the periscope.

Having lost their sight, the men must work out how to sail, navigate and negotiate bad weather at sea. But strange occurences on board suggest that not all is as it seems....
