Doc Ford fans are likely to be disappointed by the audio version of White's latest marine adventure. Both the plot and reading are as mediocre and ambiguous as the book's title, which is the name of the sunken ship that this adventure is built around. After a Category Four hurricane hits the Florida coast, Ford and his crew are talked into hunting for that ship, lost in a storm in 1944. The woman who persuades them claims that her lover disappeared at the same time as the ship. Henry Strozier, has an interesting voice but one better suited to nonfiction. His voice tends makes his characters sound older (and more feeble) than perhaps intended. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
