Pressestimmen"I was pleasantly surprised to find that once I started the book it was a rollicking'rip-roaring, salty-dog yarn, that left me storm tossed and not a little seasick. I could not put it down. Well worth reading." - Nautical Magazine, September 2004. "Rich, compelling characters and vivid imagery. There are no white knights here and no one-dimensional villains." -- Publishers Weekly
