Young Adult • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

A storm at sea, smugglers, murder, mystery and intrigue--this adventure story has it all. Teenaged John Spencer is enjoying his first voyage aboard one of his father's merchant ships when they're tricked into wrecking the ship along the wild coast of Cornwall during a brutal storm. This was no accident, and John must learn the truth about this strange community in order to save his father's life. Ron Keith navigates this terrain of cruelty and despair with subtle nuance, bringing the various characters to life with his careful rendering of their accents, genders and ages. In the end, John discovers that there is little that is only right or only wrong, and Keith conveys this message with his voice as well as with Lawrence's words. An exciting, powerful story is narrated with great skill and assurance. S.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
