Tom Tin, the young hero of THE CONVICTS, returns to find himself on a juvenile convict ship headed for Australia. John Keating's engaging narration immediately involves the listener as he relates how the unjustly accused Tom and his blind friend, Midgely, fall overboard and wash up on a small island. An encounter with a crazed shipwreck victim and attempts to escape the island in a leaking boat are just the beginning of their perils. As Keating chronicles man-eating snakes, headhunters, pirates, Komodo dragons, and cannibals, he masterfully conveys the spirit of the young convicts. Listeners will find themselves rooting for Tom and Midgely as they attempt to outwit their captors and escape their predicament. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
