Publisher's Summary

Thomas Kydd, a hero of Trafalgar, holds the glory of being Post-Captain of the 32-gun frigate, L'Aurore. A Caribbean posting seems a welcome respite for the war hero, but when more and more merchantmen begin vanishing from the sea, fear starts to spread. Kydd must embark on a dangerous game of espionage in order to destroy this new and terrible danger to the Empire.

He's not Kydding!

This series simply continues to deliver high quality entertainment. It remains full of thoroughly researched plots and information. Christian Rodska is still the perfect narrator for it and I even enjoyed the author's notes, especially the glossary!

Simply put this is a top quality series of historical naval fiction and the quality has been remarkably consistent from book one to this.
