    "An amazing story written by one of the top writing teams of the 20th and 21st centuries. Janet and Chris Morris are superb and prolific writers. Any book written by this team .The 2004 tsunami was massive in every respect: the earthquake that preceded it was one of the largest ever recorded, the number of people killed or displaced is estimated at well over a million, and the international community donated billions of dollars to the relief effort. In some cases the tsunami struck regions already embroiled in other kinds of catastrophes "
