Publisher's Summary

Unbeknown to John Pearce, the private letter he is delivering on behalf of the prime minister carries the dismissal of the very man he is sailing to see. The need for a government majority to pursue the war with France means John Pearce must step down as Britain’s best sailor, regretfully relinquishing the position to the incompetent Admiral Hotham.
Hotham is equally less than pleased about John Pearce, as he is the one person who knows the truth about his dishonest naval career. Pearce knows Hotham will try and destroy him any way he can to keep from being exposed, so he must navigate the dangerous waters whilst trying to return to Emily Barclay, the woman he loves.

Disappointing ending

Any additional comments?

A good story but maybe too many references to previous story lines. I realise there should be some. I enjoyed listening to it but the ending was too abrupt. There could have been at least another 2 hours of story. Now I need to find the next book to find out what happened next.
