This is the last book in the trilogy. Our protagonist, Captain Percival Mereweather of the British East India Company’s Bombay Marine, takes command of the company’s ship Pitt. Mereweather quells a mutiny and has to deal with an overbearing first lieutenant. The story covers the Gulf of Aden, Bay of Bengal and the South China Sea. There are, of course, a great variety of pirates such as Arabian, Malay and Chinese along with the French Navy’s ships to deal with. There is lots of sea action with storms and sea battles.
The book is well written and the plot twists and turns. Meacham has good prose and interesting characters. It is most unfortunate the author died before completing this series. Meacham is a great story teller. I love stories of sailing ships and the Royal Navy in the Napoleonic era.
The book is almost fifteen hours long. Steven Crossley does an excellent job narrating the book. Crossley is an actor and award-winning audiobook narrator.
