Description
Following the loss of his fiancée, recounted in The Admiral's Daughter, Lieutenant Thomas Kydd is in the depths of grief in this ninth installment of Julian Stockwin's riveting nautical adventure series. And though he is rescued from his depression by his enigmatic mate Nicholas Renzi, Kydd finds life all but impossible when he is framed for smuggling and put off his ship in the Guernsey islands. He and Renzi eke out a pitiful existence until his friend falls in with the Prince de Bouillon, who is plotting to kidnap Napoleon, and Kydd accepts the command of a privateer—and one last chance at redemption. A veteran himself of the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy since the age of 15, Julian Stockwin has always been in love with sailing ships and the sea. His historical adventure series, set in the Napoleonic era, has often been compared to the works of C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian.

"Another thundering good read for those who love seagoing stories in the Hornblower mold."—Peterborough Evening Telegraph (UK)

"Stockwin is a born storyteller and a man with a vivid imagination. Importantly, his research is accurate and first class."—Flagship
