This story has all the elements of a classic: a grand adventure on the high seas, intimate character portraits, riveting action sequences, and a great narrator. With a homespun accent, impeccable diction, and unique characters, Steven Crossley adds depth and emotion to this tale of a British frigate trying to stop the African slave trade. Crossley takes an even, sober approach when delivering the narrative and transforms himself with characterizations of an assured captain, a mate with scurvy, and a frightened boy on his first voyage. The story unfolds slowly, but Crossley knows how to build credibility, assuring us that great events are yet to follow. All hands on deck! R.I.G.
