    1. A thoroughly good read. In the beginning we are in Shanghai and the story starts with a theft of glass beads (of course that's not clear to begin with; well the beads are clear because they're glass, but no one knows that, I mean, they know the beads are clear but they don't know they're glass so it's clearly an unclear situation)Anyway, a young woman (former WW1 nurse) ends up buying the beads as a cheap souvenir and ends up kidnapped by a millionaire art collector whose whole yacht and crew is [...]

    4. Not sure what I expected with this book and the title thereof, but I found the story a very enjoyable drama with the characters handled deftly handled. It is a end of the war story as a young woman and a captain are returning to America from Russia and they get caught up in a grand theft and kidnapped aboard a yacht of a art collector, which is where things are to get really interesting.

    6. a fun read the librivox production is worth the download and listen, esp. on a long summer afternoon. an adventure story.
