Audible Editor Reviews

Fueled by an Ahab-ian obsession with uncovering a 16th-century Portuguese ship, archaeologist David Norfolk, the protagonist of James Bradley’s spellbinding work of postmodern historical fiction, embarks on a dizzying journey in which he crosses paths with an ex-lover, unearths a 50-year-old corpse, and encounters an irascible and terminally ill hermit who may be able to unlock the mystery surrounding the mythical vessel in this riveting listen performed by the talented Humphrey Brower, whose distinguished, reassuring tone anchors the proceedings and beautifully captures the vivid, lyrical quality of Bradley’s prose.
