Publisher's Summary

Spithead, 1784. His Majesty's frigate, Undine, sets sail for India and the seas beyond. Europe may be at peace - but in colonial waters the promises of statesmen count for little and the bloody struggle for supremacy still goes on. Richard Bolitho would have cause to remember his admiral's words: 'The task I am giving you would be better handled by a squadron'.

Boys Own Adventure

For all Patrick O'Brien fans who have run out of books this is decidedly one step down and should be listed as an adventure yarn. Not much seamanship here its up and down with the top gallants loke a whore's draws on a Saturday night in Portsmouth.
If you like your swashbuckling gory red and Navy blue you might well take to this.
