John Lee reads this seafaring tale in a crisp British accent, with a hint of hysteria that fits the central character well. In his tenth outing, Captain Alan Lewrie sails in the West Indies, where a bloody slave rebellion against the Colonialists is taking place. In interludes and flashbacks we perceive that Lewrie is a philandering and foulmouthed cad, besides being a skilled naval officer, and that during a recent stay in England his wife has taken exception to his marital infidelity. Sea and land battles occur, with the story meandering here and there without much point. D.A.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
