Brother Fish brings together three unlikely people who are all focused on one purpose--finding a fortune in the depths of the sea.

Brother Fish will take you all over the world as you follow the adventures of three people from very different backgrounds on their underwater treasure missions. Jack McKenzie, Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan, and Jimmy Oldcorn make up this incredible team in a drama that's set during one of the most pivotal times in world history.

Through the blood and death that surrounds the Korean War, arise a partnership between Jack and Jimmy. One is a soldier who loves playing the harmonica. However, he's also a professional fisherman. The other is a former street kid and New York gang leader. They're joined by Nicole, who is a kindly, elderly woman with a mysterious past. Her secretive background in Shanghai only adds to the story, and it becomes quite obvious right from the beginning that she has a strength that her male partners hadn't counted on.

Together, they'll indulge themselves in their business, finding riches all over the world during one of the most dangerous periods of our world's history.

Bryce Courtenay has long been regaled as Australia's favorite novelist and storyteller. He admits that at one point in his life, he fell in love with words. When Bryce was 20 years old, he began to go after the career he had fallen in love with--writing--at the London School of Journalism. He has penned countless works of fiction that his fans simply adore. In many of his books, he attacks prejudice without apology, and in Brother Fish, you'll be captivated by his understanding of prejudice, as well as the depth of his characters.

From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama and war story of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life. Jack McKenzie is a harmonica player, soldier, dreamer, and small-time professional fisherman from a tiny island in Bass Strait. Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan is a strong-willed woman hiding from an ambiguous past in Shanghai. Larger than life, Private Jimmy Oldcorn was once a street kid and leader of a New York gang. Together, they reap a vast and not always legitimate fortune from the sea. Narrated by celebrated, award-winning actor Humphrey Bower. Download and start listening now!
