Thomas Kydd has dragged himself up in the navy from press-ganged seaman to captain of his own ship. Now he faces disgrace. After offending a general and suffering a personal tragedy, Kydd is sent to guard the Channel Islands. His career in tatters, he then makes a terrible enemy on his own side. When he is brutally betrayed off the Normandy coast, only his old friend, Renzi, is willing to stick by him. Then Kydd is given an extraordinary opportunity to salvage his fortunes and return to the sea as captain of a privateer. But privateers are hated by the French and the Royal Navy.

Brilliance in Disgrace!

This is one of my favourite novels from this excellent series. The narration from Christian Rodska is as good as ever - which means top notch for this kind of fiction!

The characters continue to develop and Stockwin is not afraid to put our heroes to the test and make them do things that are against their principles when in extremis making them more human and believable as a result.

As usual it's richly researched with the historical detail imparted woven neatly into the story so that it never intrudes on what is another excellent seafaring yarn!
