Returning to England after the dramatic capture of Martinique, Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho attains an all too brief respite from war and politics. But the shadow of a new conflict already darkens the horizon. The old enemy, France, forges an uneasy alliance with America - threatening the safety of British trade routes. Although ordered immediately to the Indian Ocean, Bolitho’s thoughts are of his own - and the Navy’s - past. Both Nelson and Collingwood died in their country’s service. For the Navy’s newest Admiral, is there life beyond the sea itself?

The Book is great but please, please let the listener know the order in which a series needs to be listened to. Kent just writes books, great books if you like his genre but it is essential you listen to them in sequence. Would it be too hard to ask???
MORE OF WHAT YOU WANT FROM KENT..........HIGHLY ADDICTIVE PERIOD ADVENTURE. CHARLES DICKENS WOULD BE PROUD OF THESE CHARACTERS.. MERRY OLDE ENGLAND WITH ALL IT'S VICES AND INTRIGUE.
I WISH AUDIBLE HAD THE WHOLE SERIES.OH WELL,DON'T FORGET RECORDED BOOKS BY CS FORESTER/HORATIO HORNBLOWER AS WELL AS PATRICK O'BRIAN.SAME GENRE ,DIFFERENT PERSONALITY.
