The second novel in the Tarzan series opens with the aristocratic ape man aboard an ocean liner en route from New York to Europe, on which he has encounters with Russian spies, French counts, and beautiful women. This is a wonderful story that binds Tarzan eternally with Jane Porter and introduces the fabled city of Opar. Robert Whitfield’s reading is nearly perfect, giving the story an air that is gallantly Victorian while intensely exciting. With the exception of female American characters, which come across as artificial, Whitfield gives his characters voices that authentically express their genders, nationalities, and temperaments.
