I've been looking forward to the 3rd installment of the delightful Charlie Smithers and C.W. Lovatt did not disappoint. Charlie is in the thick of it right from the get-go as their homeward bound ship is besieged by pirates. This is only the first of many perils our Mr. Smithers faces on his trek 'down under' - yet even when he is in the direst of straits, he quips a one-liner that has me laughing aloud. Pirates, a very mysterious woman and a showdown with a band of merciless outlaws. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
