I do not usually have much time to read, but Lost at Sea seemed like an interesting title to pick up. A few nights later, and I can proudly say that I have completed the book. This is because Klein’s style is so catchy. While each of the book’s events are amazing in their own rights, I find that the writing style is what kept things interesting. Klein centers the events of this title around eirself, sand I believe that it becomes easy to imagine oneself as the focal point of Lost at Sea.

Patrick McDermott disappeared in 2005, and the Coast Guard had closed their rescue case by 2008. The lead investigator of the case (and Lost at Sea’s author) felt that the Coast Guard was hasty in that decision, vowing to figure out what had truly happened to McDermott. Through tremendous dedication, Klein was able to find that McDermott was still alive and trump those that doubted eir.

The sheer amount of work that went into the case of Patrick McDermott far outstrips other missing persons cases, but the title ends with Klein finding McDermott’s family the closure that they need. I know that this is eir account of the events, but I would like subsequent books that examined other of Klein’s cases.

Rating: 7.9/10

  1. BEWARE: This book is about author Philip Klein, not about Patrick McDermott. While some may think his ex sounds like a bitch, I thought the author sounded like a stalker with the way he hounded that poor woman. And I don’t know why he didn’t just go to the LAPD for a DNA sample…if if had any valid proof of life, he could of matched that with the LAPD samples. The problem is that he just mysteriously came up with a sample from someone in Mexico, and this was really McDermott’s DNA! This whole book is great.
