In the second installment of the pirate adventures of Thomas Marlowe, Nelson takes listeners from Colonial Virginia to London and to the steamy coast of Madagascar in search of wealth. Marlowe is joined by his charming wife, Elizabeth; his friend, Bickerstaff; the pirate Billy Byrd, and other characters from his first novel, BLACKBIRDER. Peter Wickham is perfect as the somewhat reformed pirate Marlowe, whom he graces with wisdom, knowledge of the sea, and lots of bold courage in the face of danger. Wickham’s flawless performance includes a comfortable knowledge of the sea, the mysterious parts of a sailing ship, and the deeds of pirates, as well as tons of swift action. A perfect swashbuckling adventure with blood and guts and the smell of salt in the air. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 04]
