Publisher's Summary

Three mismatched troop transports, lots of 29-foot barges, and an under-strength regiment of foot - a waste of Royal Navy money, a doomed experiment, or a new way to bedevil Napoleon's army in Italy? Either way, it's Capt. Sir Alan Lewrie's idea, and it seems to be working, with successful raids all along the coast of Calabria. 

But it depends on timely information, and Lewrie must trust Don Julio Caesare, a lord of a Sicilian criminal underworld, and his minions, or the amateur efforts of a disorganized network of Calabrian partisans always in need of British arms and King George III's money.

When at last the fourth transport arrives with reinforcement troops, what seems to be a blessing could turn out to be the ruin of the whole thing! Lewrie has been too successful in his career at sea and he's made bitter, jealous enemies with powerful patrons out to crush him and his novel squadron, no matter if it's succeeding. And there are doings back in England that Lewrie would prefer to deal with but can't.

Lewrie has always been lucky, always finding a way to prevail-but can he this time? And if he is to be betrayed, who will do it?

one of the best of the series

Lewrie meets a real challenge to his cess. This book was great from start to finish, but seems to be part of a trilogy.

Treachery will never win out!

Alan Lewrie can succeed in spite of his enemies. Dixon will never learn because of his preconceived misconceptions. The action is powerful and the bravery demonstrated by individual characters should never be discounted. A truly inspirational tale.

Excellent as expected. It brings the era to life

Excellent as expected, John Lee does well with the many dialects to be found aboard a Kong's ship.

Love the way Lambdin writes.

Lambdin makes an imperfect, but self-aware, character seem… perfect.
“Seas so rough they put the Saltiest hands a gagging on the Lea rails.” One of my favorite lines!

Well written - very boring

I tried several hours of this audiobook - hoping that it would get interesting - it did not. Dialogue and more dialogue with little action. This is the only book in the series I have tried - maybe the others are better...
