Publisher's Summary

October 1789, New South Wales, and into Sydney, capital of Britain's infant colony, sails the frigate Tempest. She is one of His Majesty's ships employed in policing the new southern trade routes. Her captain is Richard Bolitho, who hopes to be ordered home to England. Instead he is dispatched on a mission to the islands of the Great South Sea, where he must face hazards of fickle winds, pirates, and savage islanders.

    "Let down by poor audio"

    Sounds like it was ripped from audio cassettes, old ones at that rather then the original master recording

    "Great story almost ruined by poor audio"
    Would you try another book written by Alexander Kent or narrated by Michael Jayston?

    I am slowly purchasing all the Alexander Kent Blytho books and this story like the others is excellent as is the performance by Michael Jayston.

    The audio is apalling though with jumps, changes in tone and pitch and breakes very badly put together. Nothing like the quality I would have expected. Something went very badly in the recording and editing process

    "Great story well read"

    Great book, really enjoyable, my only criticism is it's very jarring where the narrator finishes one recording session and starts another and seemingly random interviews and stands at different distances to the microphone. Nevertheless he reads well and it's a good story.

    "Sound quality below par"

    The sound quality in this book is below that of others in the series which is disappointing because it doesn't do justice to Jaystons efforts

    "Bad sound"

    As usual the story and narration were great . But I have to say the sound quality and the editing left a lot to be desired. Think it must have been the sound editors day off on this one !?!?
