Charlie Thurston narrates from the perspective of 16-year-old Robbie, who leaves his isolated home in the Alaska Panhandle to spend his summer fishing for salmon. Despite some apprehension, Robbie takes a job with the reclusive and temperamental Tor Torsen. It’s just Robbie and Torsen on the boat, and Thurston creates revealing voices for both as Robbie begins to learn that Torsen isn’t just fishing. He’s also searching for historical artifacts he intends to sell illegally. Thurston’s expressive reading enlivens the lengthy passages of exposition about history and geography, and brings passion to the scenes of fishing. A compelling mix of adventure, suspense, and a fascinating setting. A.F. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
