Richard Bolitho Novels #24: Second to Noneby Alexander Kent
Synopses & Reviews
In the days immediately following Waterloo, the British fleet confronts a new threat: Algerian pirates preying on hapless merchant ships. Adam Bolitho, Admiral Richard Bolitho's nephew and heir, finds himself in command of Unrivalled, a new kind of frigate—sleek, fast, and heavily armed.
Set on the eve of Waterloo, this book opens the second era of the Bolitho chronicles. Battling pirates and slavers, Adam Bolitho, captain of the Unrivalled, stands alone at the dawn of a new era in history, poised to take up the intrigue, the duty, and the bond with the sea which are his legacy.
