Friday Reads: 72 HOURS

It’s cold. And dark. The oxygen is running out. All around you men and vomiting, freezing, drifting between fitful consciousness and sleep. Somewhere above you a team of strangers, delayed and restricted by your own country’s bureaucracy, are desperately diving to try and get you out… And it’s all real. 72 HOURS tells the story of a submarine accident off Russia’s far-eastern coast, leaving the crew of a tiny craft trapped in the Bering Sea.
