    Ex-Chief Investigator Arkady Renko is in deep on the “slime line” - the fish-gutting station - in the Polar Star, a Soviet fish factory ship of some 250 souls, almost as many secrets, and a dangerous shipboard sub-culture that cares little for the Party, and less for human life.

    Richard Delman says: "Probably the greatest audiobook ever. Really."
    "Exceeded expectations"

    Story
    Would you listen to Polar Star again? Why?

    No. Excellent book, but life is too short for second readings of popular fiction.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Renko, of course.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a personification to each character that I might not take from the book. He makes each character important within the context.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Sure, but not practical. It is always nice to come back to a good book.
