Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Returning safely to England after the dramatic capture of Martinique, Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho finds an all too brief respite from war and politics. But the shadow of a new conflict already darkens the horizon. The old enemy, France, forges an uneasy alliance with America-threatening the safety of British trade routes. Lovers of fine nautical fiction, including fans of Patrick O` Brian, C.S. Forester, and Capt. Frederick Marryat, will make a new hero of Richard Bolitho and avidly follow his exciting, historically authentic adventures.

Synopsis:

Soon after taking part in the dramatic capture of Martinique in the Caribbean, Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho is next despatched to the African coast to gather a flotilla and stop French attacks on British trade routes. But Bolitho must contend with more than Britain's old enemy—he must also face the hatred of his flag captain and betrayal by a man he once counted on as his friend.
