Publisher's Summary

Lord James Hamilton, a cashiered British Army officer, flees his home country after a series of duels threatens to end his life. He becomes James Palmer, a fur trader in one of the little trading posts far up in the American wilderness among the warring tribes. There, he finds himself fighting for his own survival. 

This book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, but is a prequel to Lloyd's Riverboat trilogy.

disappointing

Poorly written, poorly performed. The narrator's repeated mispronounciation of Thames (as in River) and even the word, "sinew", was annoying. Surely those errors could have been re-recorded to correct? The plot wanders ... changes in scene, people, and time happen suddenly with no preparation or transition. Characters are poorly drawn and rarely developed. The main character is one dimensional. His latter actions are so inconsistent with his earlier ones that he could be two different characters. This is one of those books that uses endless, pointless, descriptive detail of Native American violence as a substitute for story. There was an attempt to ground the material in accurate history, but that is most often inserted rather than provided in and as context. To me this book is a first draft that made it to print (to audiobook) without proper editing.
