Word goes among the crew of the Pole Star that the captain is haunted by demons. And after the days turn into weeks in the frigid Arctic Ocean, stories begin to circulate of ghosts and midnight hauntings.

The sample gave me the impression this was read by a British actor but the whole story was read by an American, at high speed, and with the oddest idea of what Scots sound like... Not quite Hound of the Baskervilles, but mildly entertaining way to spend an hour.
This is really a good book and a very good narrator who depicts the story very well .
I like things different. Challenging, unconventional, thought-provoking. Everything is on a spectrum, which makes life interesting.
The story was enjoyable and not as predicted on purchasing the title.
The ending does come to mind in colour more than the rest of the story.
The narration is very good and individual characters played well.
A Ghostly love story.
This is a short nautical story in the essence of the great classic., 'Wuthering Heights. The dark young captain is depicted as a character very like Heathcliffe.
"Conan Doyle wrote more than Mr. Holmes."
The story of ghostly happenings on a whaling ship is eerie and atmospheric. The mysterious Captain of the Pole Star is a hypnotic character. The Doctor narrator, ( Hmmm, another Doctor narrator?) is in an excellent position to tell the story from all perspectives.
The story is first rate, the narration by BJ Harrison is better than some of his books and his dialects were very good.
All in all a great listen!
"Old School but Good"
Old school horror done right. It was creepy but not really scary, basically a ghost story.
"Narration is terrible"
I bought two books narrated by B.J. Harrison because they were both less than a dollar together. And I regret it. The stories aren't bad at all. But the narration didn't let me enjoy them. B.J. Harrison's voice is annoying to me. He tends to take pauses where there shouldn't be and he always changes the tone, speed and volume of his speech after a pause. And even though very subtle, I can still hear his lips smack when he's about to begin a new sentence. All of it makes him sound somehwat condescending and smug. I hate it. I'll never buy a book narrated by B.J. Harrison. I wouldn't even take one for free.
good story and narrator. didn't know author did other books besides sherlock. I would recommend
