After Liverpool shipowner William Kite is hit by both the death of his wife and the deceptions of a business partner, he returns to his life on the sea. During a visit to the Colonies, the brutal murder of an old friend by American revolutionaries plunges Kite into a battle of wills with the rebels. This British seafaring novelist presents a dissenting view of the American Revolution that is at once discomforting and compelling, chronicling with well-plotted intensity the personal feud between Kite and an American rival. Joe Dunlop's narration is gripping even at the start, and grows more so as the story slowly builds. American readers might not like its view of the revolution, but this is undeniably an exciting sea yarn. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
