Ishmael Wang returns to Port Newmar, but ghosts from his past have followed him. His old shipmate, Phillip Carstairs, offers him the opportunity to track down the man who killed his lover. The catch? He must take command of the Chernyakova, a ship that still stinks of death and haunts Ishmael's nightmares.
Together Phillip and Ismael begin a journey into unknown reaches of the Deep Dark to bring back the man who killed Greta.

Great book. Looking forward to more!

I began listening to Nathan's books when he was reading them himself. I loved the way he narrated and knew exactly how each character would be feeling at the time. I wasn't sure if I'd like the new reader and I didn't at first. Given time I've grown to accept him and I'll say he did a great job with the book. All I request now is...... more books, Mr. Lowell!

Good as usual, but....

Nathan Lowell is a great inspirational writer, but I liked the series read by him. This guy just didn't do justice to the characters, especially Ishmael.

Ishmael Wong sails on.

I have, years ago, had the very great pleasure of listening to the author, Nathan Lowell, reading the preceding Trader Tale stories himself when they were podcast. He is a wonderful narrator and I thoroughly enjoyed hearing his caramel voice. Jeffery Kafer is a fine narrator and I almost got used to his "black coffee" tones, he certainly has a great range of voices and his female characters sound very good. But for me, Nathan is the voice of Captsin Wong.
Having got that off my chest let's consider the Tale. At the end of the previous book; "Owner's Share", tragedy had visited our erstwhile Captain and left him bereft just when we all thought he was happy. Thank goodness Audible have released this book and put me out of my misery! It's clearly the start of a new phase of life for Ishmael Wong and I, for one, am cheering him on and look forward to seeing what happens next.
If you haven't already, do listen to the preceedung books, this is a stand-alone story but it will be better appreciated heard in sequence. Narhan Lowell has a fine gift for making a future of Solar Clippers and interstellar travel so very plausible, its a pleasure for me to slip forward in time to this reality. There are no aliens, but tbe author describes real humans with familiar quirks and foibles, machinations and sneakiness, all set in a possible future. Our hero is very likeable and innocently wise, and his story is not yet over.

Catharsis after Owners Share

This was the therapy Ishmael and I needed after the ending to Owners Share. Building to another great story.

After the author's narration of Traders Tales this performance jars. In particular the female voices didn't feel natural, undermining what in Traders Tales were very strong characters.

Another winner for Nathan Lowell

I find these books almost compelling & while the new narrator doesn't quite have the same skill at differentiating the characters, it's still the perfect story to listen to again & again.

Missing Charm

The charm I found in the original books is missing with this new narrator but it’s good to be back in Ishmael’s universe .
