We listened to the majority of this book travelling down the motorway going to the Tatton Garden Flower show, and the detailed description of life on the ocean wave over 100 years ago was fantastic. Mt Trunnell is the second mate on a clipper ship in the south Atlantic, and the story is told through his eyes.
One of the hardest thing to believe with the story was the absolute power the captain had over everyone on the ship and even when it turns out that the captain is not all that he pretends to be, no-one is really going to challenge him because if they do then it is piracy and they would have to face all the consequences of that.
A very enjoyable story of murder, gold thefts, storms, disaster and ..well you will have to listen to the story yourself to find out what happens. It can be downloaded from librivox
