Really enjoyed this book. Characters were well defined . You get a real feel of the squalor and intrigue of the era. The audio recording was a bit of a disappointment. The male voices were clear but the female/youth voices were too soft therefore I was constantly having to adjust the volume.
Any additional comments?
the two main characters in the story are tom pasoe, a captain of a ship, who has lost his job due to the ship being vandalised and its cargo stolen.. he them becomes a leader in the newly formed river police.
boylin, an irish immigrant, is the villain who hates Pascoe for the punishment he received for wrong doing.
a well written story which brings the 1798 port of London to life, the people the rich the poor and the unwashed. a story based on fact and a few who did exist at that time.
gripping and fast paced a joy to listen to.
recommended if you want something different from the normal in crime stories.
looking forward to the river of fire.
