Fiction • 8 hrs. 41 min. • Unabridged • © 1992

A tale of betrayal and piracy is launched amid the wind and waters of the Barents Sea. This a drama in the best British tradition, and Thorne is the quintessential player, catching each tone and accent of the cast. Cockney soldier, Shakespeare-quoting captain, or Scots lass, all come to life in the struggles of wartime seas, a military trial, and prison life. There is a chase worthy of Hitchcock's early films, dark as a nightmare in everyday surroundings. This is quality entertainment, well presented by Chivers.
