The rich voice of narrator Steve West draws listeners into the setting of England in the year 1824. The story begins with newly married Captain Declan Frobisher accepting a mission to sail to West Africa. Personnel have gone missing, and Declan is asked to investigate. Is it any surprise when Lady Edwina, his wife, sneaks on board his ship? West speaks with a smooth inflection, seamlessly moving between the alternating viewpoints of Declan and Edwina. West conveys both the tension of danger and the sensuality between husband and wife. His delivery of the couple's upper-class British accent is masterful. Since this is the first book in a quartet, listeners can look forward to further adventures, the next ones involving Declan's brothers. S.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
