Summary

Robbed of his wife and ousted from his huge shipping empire, Nick Berg is hell-bent on vengeance. It is the sea that gives him his opportunity. When his arch-rival's luxury liner is trapped in the tempestuous Antarctic, Nick stakes all to pit his powerful salvage tug, the Warlock, in a desperate race against time and the elements.

Disapointing

This version is not abreviated but cut short to only include about a third of the book. Not worth spending money on

Hungry as the Sea

This audio book only tells about half of the oriental story as told in the book. Had I know this I would not have bought it

Disapointing Effort

Unfortunately this recording is not so much abridged as butchered; the story that remains is disjointed, relationships between the characters become unclear, and the story stops just over half way through (in my printed copy there are 446 pages, the last events mentioned in the recording occur on page 234 - 47% of the original story ignored!)

This was my fisrt abridged recording from Audible, from now on I'll be downloading only unabridged books!
