    I love this series. This is the 3rd book in the series, but the first one I listened to on audio. Piper and Susi write great books, and Colin did a great job bringing those characters to life! This book is Sana and Peters story. Everyone always thought Sana was an Alpha, which is how he wanted it to be until he met his heart song Peter. Piper Alpha survivor Steve Rae issues a call for industry to use evidence-based development to develop a fully competent workforce; and; the next generation of offshore workers talk about how Piper Alpha has shaped their careers despite being born after the accident happened.
