Ramage hopes to enjoy a well-deserved leave when he receives new orders: Commission and take command of the Dido - a massive 74-gun ship that carries enough weight of metal to destroy a frigate in a single broadside, or sweep a ship's decks clear of men. Accompanied by the courageous crew of the Calypso, Ramage ventures to sea once again - bound for the West Indies where he faces the challenge of commanding this massive weapon of war.

Finally! Ramage is in a ship of the line, a 74; and he puts it to very good use in this stirring sea tale. Ramage continues with all the characters we've cone to know and love over time. The only real complaint is that this is the last audiobook available in the series and leaves things hanging for the avid audio listener. There are more Ramage printed books, but those do not fill the drudge on the commute home as these have for the last few months. Audible, how about some more Alan Lewrie and Ramage novel???
Yes, this was a pleasant adventure in a new ship. Unfortunately, it is the last in what is over all a very entertaining series.
Steven Crossley has become one of my favorite narrators. His work on the Ramage series has been excellent. He gives life to the characters.
