Narrator Ron Keith is the consummate match for Lawrence's spectacular sequel to The Wreckers. His versatile repertoire of accents supports the array of characters involved with an intricate plot. The intrigue builds as the unsuspecting young John Spencer sails forth on his father's new ship, The Dragon, from Kent to London with a load of wool, accompanied by a band of smugglers. John's life appears to be threatened at every turn by the captain and his crew of scalawags; Keith brings all the memorable characters to life--from the menacing Captain Crowe; to the fool-hardy highwayman and faint-hearted sailor, Dasher, in his coat of corks; to the blind innkeeper, Mrs. Pye, who cares only for the return of her beloved, the quirky Fleming. Rousing adventure for middle-grade and young adult listeners. T.B. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
