Grown and raised on the streets of Chicago; a ruthless, brawling beast of a man who detests all that “class” and “highbrow society” has to offer. Shanghaied and put into service upon a pirate’s vessel to kidnap an affluent business man’s daughter on the high seas. Shipwrecked with mutineering shipmates, Billy Byrne now fights to rescue the young woman from not only these pirates, but ancient samurai headhunters that inhabit this lonely island…and to find the man that truly lies inside the beast. Summary by Joe DeNoia (4 hr 57 min)

Reviews

(4.5 stars)

A little hard to understand because of the deep baritone voice. but the story is well written and we'll read. Did Burroughs ever write a story where the hero wasn't a giant with grey eyes?

Too difficult to understand

(1 stars)

Joseph has such a deep voice that it echoes (or similar) in the recording. Perhaps this can be adjusted, because the reading is regular and smooth. I just cannot follow it.

Story is Good, Bad recording.
