Publisher's Summary

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?

Please List In Sequence!

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???
