A story of the race for nutmegs and how several people changed the way things work by their behaviour. Nathaniel is a pivotal character in his attempt to hold a spice island and the tragedy of how he wasn't backed up.

Interesting but really I didn't find it incredibly engaging. I'm not sure why it didn't really work for me and maybe it is the author's style. It might make a very good film.
