Word goes among the crew of the Pole Star that the captain is haunted by demons. And after the days turn into weeks in the frigid Arctic Ocean, stories begin to circulate of ghosts and midnight hauntings.

An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
The story of ghostly happenings on a whaling ship is eerie and atmospheric. The mysterious Captain of the Pole Star is a hypnotic character. The Doctor narrator, ( Hmmm, another Doctor narrator?) is in an excellent position to tell the story from all perspectives.
The story is first rate, the narration by BJ Harrison is better than some of his books and his dialects were very good.
All in all a great listen!
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
Old school horror done right. It was creepy but not really scary, basically a ghost story.
"This is really a good book and i recommend it !!"
This is really a good book and a very good narrator who depicts the story very well .
The sample gave me the impression this was read by a British actor but the whole story was read by an American, at high speed, and with the oddest idea of what Scots sound like... Not quite Hound of the Baskervilles, but mildly entertaining way to spend an hour.
"Wuthering Heights goes to sea."
The story was enjoyable and not as predicted on purchasing the title.
The ending does come to mind in colour more than the rest of the story.
The narration is very good and individual characters played well.
A Ghostly love story.
This is a short nautical story in the essence of the great classic., 'Wuthering Heights. The dark young captain is depicted as a character very like Heathcliffe.
