Writer Clive Cussler founded the real-life NUMA, the National Underwater & Marine Agency, to search for lost ships of historical significance. Books in Cussler's Sea Hunters series comprise fictionalized accounts of true adventures relating to that research. Stories of ghost ships from the past entertain as well as inform about what might have happened in the last minutes before they sank. Edward Herrmann characterizes the stories with French, German, British, and Italian accents, depending on the ship's master and country of origin. Remote viewing, a twenty-first-century development, is sometimes employed to find ship remains. Though particularly suited to history buffs, the well-done narration will entertain any audience.
