NOT A GENTLEMAN'S WORK The Untold Story of a Gruesome Murder at Sea and the Long Road to Truth

by | Read by Daniel Thomas May

History • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Aboard the American sailing ship HERBERT FULLER in 1896, the captain, his wife, and the second mate were murdered with an ax for no discernible reason, and the killer remains unknown. Actor Daniel Thomas May narrates this tale in the authoritative tone of a newscaster, which works well when he delivers the author's own words. However, when the author quotes from contemporary sources --which are often in imperfect English, since most of the crew were Europeans--May makes the odd decision to speak in awkward, halting phrases. Nonetheless, this a thoroughly researched and well-told account of an enduring mystery. D.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
