Publisher's Summary

Cape Colony is proving a tiresome assignment for Captain Kydd's daring commander-in-chief. Rumours of popular unrest in the Spanish colonies and of a treasure hoard spur him to assemble a makeshift invasion fleet and launch a bold attack on the capital of the Viceroyalty of the River Plate, Buenos Aires. Navigating the treacherous bars and mud flats of the river, the British invasion force lands and wins a battle against improbable odds, taking the capital and the silver. But nothing is as simple as it seems here: the uprising that will see the end of Spanish rule never arrives and the locals begin to see dark conspiracies behind the invader's actions.

Soon the tiny British force finds itself surrounded by an ever more hostile population. The city begins to revolt against its liberators. Now Kydd's men must face fierce resistance and the betrayal of their closest allies. Can they save themselves, and their prize?

    Give me a spy novel, mystery, history, and a little science and I'm totally happy

    "Kidd summary"

    This Kidd series has been fun and I'll be waiting for the final books. All are baised on history and provide a great review of events of the time. As sea stories they can't be beat.

    Story
    "Bogged down and couldn't finish"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'm sure I'll get back to this story someday, but it just bogged down too much and I dropped it and moved on without finishing it.


    What could Julian Stockwin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book looses much of the adventure of the previous books. Like the earlier "Admirals Daughter", the reader is constantly reminded that "this will not end well." It is hard to love a character who keeps blindly heading down the path to foolish self-destruction.


    Do you think Betrayal needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I certainly hope that later stories in this series get back to the promise that the first books had.

    I liked all of the main characters and the storyline was very interesting


    What other book might you compare Betrayal to and why?

    I read alot of Royal Navy books and each have similarities and differences

    Yes, each time he has done a great performance and I enjoy his talent as a reader


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had both and the high points and low points of the story


    Any additional comments?

    Look forward to reading more of the series

    Story
    "Stockwin and Rodska - A Guilty Pleasure"

    A series to which my return has been long overdue. I've been a fan of this series from the very start and it was excellent to spend some time listening to Rodska's perfectly suited narration of Stockwin's characters. This actually turned out to be one of my favourites in the series!

    Plenty of action, clever tactics and Renzi's latest attempts to win back respectability take an amusing turn. Unusually there is no great romantic interest for Kydd to be distracted by and I have to confess to not missing that regular staple of his ongoing story.

    There is of course the usual demonstration of Stockwin's vast knowledge of his subject which is never allowed to bog the story down.

    If you haven't tried this series yet it is very well worth taking the books in the right order rather than jumping in but this could still be enjoyed as a standalone adventure.

    In brief this is a most excellent continuation of one of my favourite series and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the genre.
