Publisher's Summary

It is 1793, for love of war and money....

Once a French corvette, she was reborn HMS Jester, sleek and fast. At her sea-sprayed helm is former Midshipman Alan Lewrie, turned grizzled warrior by trade. But when Commander Lewrie reaches the island of Corsica, he gets orders for which even he is not prepared: lure his archenemy, French commander Guillaume Choundas, into battle - and personally strike him dead.

From splintering-hulled ships battling broadside to exotic ports of call, the adventures of Alan Lewrie capture an age of heroism and action on the great, wind-lashed fighting ships.

good book, bad reader

I had read this book in hard copy and enjoyed it.
John Lee, the reader of the Audible edition is difficult to understand and makes it hard to listen to.
