Book review: The Wake of the Perdido Star by Gene Hackman and Daniel Lenihan

Wake of the Perdido Star by Gene Hackman My rating: 3 of 5 stars I enjoyed this post-American Revolutionary seafaring tale for its new twists on an old traditional sailor plot-line. Young Jack O’Reilly is at that late teen-age point where he longs to…
