Summary

London, 1812: When the crew of the Solander, a ship carrying rare specimens of plant from the paradise island of Otaheite, are found dead, their faces twisted into hideous expressions, Detective Charles Horton is put in charge of the investigation. It becomes clear that this is a mystery that began near the foot of great Tahiti Nui, in the shadow of a dead volcano, beneath the eyes of unforgiving ancient gods.

Depth to the characters

This is a great 'listen' there is lots of depth to the characters and there are contrasting scenes and settings that really come alive. The narrator is good making use of dramatic narration to separate speech. Worth a go.
