Stephen Thorne is the perfect choice for reading Hammond Innes's saga of pollution and suspense. His British accent fits the protagonist to a T. Thorne is equally effective with the other characters, from lightly accented Iranians to French mademoiselles. With more than two thousand BBC Radio broadcasts to his credit, he is a widely experienced voice actor who excels at audiobooks. Innes's story takes the listener to a variety of exotic locales, with the hero spending a lot of time at sea in large and small vessels, always in some kind of danger. The pollution angle is topical today, and Innes writes with compelling power. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
