Publisher's Summary

    Story
    "Great description of a hurricane"

    This is the fourth book in the Lord Ramage series. Ramage is in command of the brig HMS Triton. They have been assigned to escort a trade convoy across the Caribbean from Barbados to Jamaica, along with several frigates and the Admiral’s flagship.

    Pope lets fly with the action and political intrigue. A French privateer cons his way into the convoy and attempts to capture a precious cargo. An unseasonable hurricane puts everyone in danger. The HMS Triton is dismasted and is at the mercy of winds and currents. They become shipwrecked on a hostile shore. Ramage and crew capture a Spanish garrison, find a Spanish treasure and capture a Spanish cargo ship to get them to Jamaica. Oh, after all that he is then court-martialed and Pope writes a great court scene.

    The book is lots of fun, sort of impossible adventures by Ramage and crew. The book is well written and moves at a fast pace with lots of sailing and Royal Navy lore. Steven Crossley narrated the book.

    Story
    "The hero and the villain."

    I know the series is a fairytale, but I enjoy reading it. The author gets away with it for two reasons; first, his heroes are much larger than life and his villains are completely despicable. And the hero always gets the girl. Second he has a literary skill, when he describes the sky or the waves breaking on shore or the dawn that draws you in. Very entertaining, just what you need from an audible performance. And I think the narrator feels the same way I do because he treats his subject with respect and style.
