Overview
"A compelling story of a modern day maritime tragedy that beautifully discusses the vital importance of advances in observational technologies, forecasts and communications in avoiding future loss of life at sea. Jay Jacobs skillfully weaves together the legal, scientific and maritime narratives to enthrall and educate the reader." - Julie Thomas, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Manager of the Institute of Geo and Planetary Physics "Using his authenticating experience as a highly trained sailor and trial lawyer, Jacobs analyzes San Francisco's worst recreational fishing boat accident and its resulting litigation. The Widow Wave provides insight into this tragedy and depicts the infighting between the highly skilled lawyers and their expert witnesses. How this accident happened will keep you guessing right up to the end. The Widow Wave is crisply written, fast paced, and a most enjoyable read." - Daniel J. Kelly, Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger; Past President of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association "Trial lawyer Jay Jacobs, in a unique, personally revealing memoir, defends a widow and her deceased husband's honor in an intimate first person account of how the civil trial process unfolds.... The reader will learn about the strategies, shoals, and embroilments of a real life, vigorously contested trial with its many emotional upheavals. You will come to appreciate the intricacies of the adversarial legal system as your fingers turn the pages detailing each day's developments in a high stakes trial with intriguing twists and turns." - Justice James Marchiano (ret.), formerly Presiding Justice, California Court of Appeals, First Appellate District "An intelligently told true story of honor, integrity and justice. The Widow Wave reminded me of The Perfect Storm, played out in a taut courtroom thriller. Jay Jacobs masterfully weaves the harrowing tale of the last voyage of The Aloha, and courtroom battle that followed. A great read." - Robert Dugoni, Bestselling Author of 'My Sister's Grave'"
