An old friend. A new course. A deadly ship with a secret cargo.
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.

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!
Gosh now I want the next one. I was afraid of being disappointed by the narrator as I'm used to listening to the author but that wasn't the case at all. What a great book!
The traders tails series was fantastic all the way through. This series has a bit more action to it (so far), but maintains the overall feeling of the other.
Ish is back with Pip, and only fun will follow... for us readers, at least.
As good as all his previous books. But....while I continue to marvel at the authors story telling acumen and the narrators dulcet tones......this one is a little thin in story line....hope the author fills up the next one a lil better......looking forward to it/them...
Love the characters, callbacks, humor and tears.
Reunion with first mate. (no spoilers)
Too many to choose from.
Laughed frequently, cried a few times.
My favorite ship was in Owner's Share, but it's always fun to visualize them all.
After listening to Nathan Lowell narrate his other books, I was excited about the story, but this narrator did not do it justice. He mispronounced many words, and sounds like he's narrating a old crime story.
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.
"Another Great Book by Nathan Lowell"
I would recommend this book to anyone even though this may not be their genre, as Nathan Lowell is a great storyteller and his characters and storyline drags you in for a great listen.
What I like about this book is the continuation of Ishmael Horatio Wang's story and the meeting up of his old friends.
From start to finish the book is enjoyable.
If you like a good seafaring story of the old school with great characters with their development and progression in the world of the Solar Clippers this is a book for you.
"A great follow up to the traders tales"
Nathan Lowell has written another great story about the exploits of Ishmael Wong and I cant wait for more books from this series. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the Trader Tales books
"Ishmael and Pip I've missed you!"
I find myself driving home the long way just to hear a little more each day. Hopefully the wait for the next in this series won't be long..
another good book more please word word word word word word word word word word( odd sense of humor!!!!)
"loved the story"
used to listen the the first few books a long time ago. so glad they're new books coming out!! fantastic story can't wait until the next one!!
This is a new series continuing on the story from the trader tales. It has the same main character, with a few older ones coming back. I really love the narrator his voice really helps the story. I fully enjoyed this book. I will be listening to it again and can't wait to get the next.
