Nick Sandman vows to get his beloved boat, SYCORAX, back into the water, despite the efforts of two rich and powerful men to use him and the vessel for their own nefarious purposes. The thorough research that makes Bernard Cornwell's historical novels so compelling extends itself to the world of sailing, and nautical listeners will find themselves at home. David Case enters the first-person narration in perfect character as Nick fights his way back from a severe war wound, rebuilding his life through his boat. Case portrays a fine balance of bitterness tinged with hope, indignation mixed with uncertainty. His educated British accent befits a war hero, while the gravelly quality of his voice captures the essence of the man. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
