Publisher's Summary

September 1804: England stands alone against France and the fleets of Spain, anticipating invasion. Vice-admiral Richard Bolitho has his own troubles to settle at home too. But his time on land is broken by an urgent summons from the King. Once more Bolitho hoists his flag above the veteran 74-gun ship Hyperion and sets sail - this time with a new squadron headed for the Caribbean. Ordered to plan and effect a daring raid on the Spanish Main, Bolitho spares himself nothing - from there to Antigua, where he rediscovers a passion that defies every convention and threatens his reputation. And the future of the Hyperion is at risk too. Set to clear the path to victory, there is a constant fear that this may be her final battle.

It's really irritating me.

Any additional comments?

I'm only a few chapters into the book but it is really grating on me to the extent that I'm not listening to the story but waiting for the next time I hear "Boleetho". It's beyond me why after listening to 16 or 17 books, the way in which the name of the main character is pronounced has to change. This one might have to be returned! Others might find this to be of no consequence, perhaps it's just me - I'm not sure.

Bit of a change

Good story but a bit disconcerting to hear the main character name pronounced differently from all the other books. Didn't Sound anything like David Jayston reading it yet at the end it did say he was reading it?
