Publisher's Summary

Thomas Kydd, a hero of Trafalgar, holds the glory of being Post-Captain of the 32-gun frigate, L'Aurore. A Caribbean posting seems a welcome respite for the war hero, but when more and more merchantmen begin vanishing from the sea, fear starts to spread. Kydd must embark on a dangerous game of espionage in order to destroy this new and terrible danger to the Empire.

"Paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line" ( Daily Express)

Thomas in another mystery

What did you love best about Caribbee?

It was a great mystery how the French was out smarting the Royal Navy

What was one of the most memorable moments of Caribbee?

I enjoyed the recovery of Thomas's servant Tiito, form the planter who wouldn't give him back

Have you listened to any of Christian Rodska’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Without a doubt Mr Rodska is one of the true professional who brings life to his characters in such a way that makes listening almost spell bounding. Keep up the good work

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Near the end when the men came forward in Cpt Kidds defense. The old admiral handled it in a way that touched my heart

Any additional comments?

Look forward to reading the next one audible puts out. Mr Stockwin has written some winners so far and we look forward to more

He's not Kydding!

This series simply continues to deliver high quality entertainment. It remains full of thoroughly researched plots and information. Christian Rodska is still the perfect narrator for it and I even enjoyed the author's notes, especially the glossary!

Simply put this is a top quality series of historical naval fiction and the quality has been remarkably consistent from book one to this.

If you like history and you like the sea this book is the one for you, a well researched and totally enthralling trip into history at sea. Just plain good listening. Thanks U enjoyed the book Colin X
