Excellent book

A real rollocking yarn with a great ending. This is the best Aubrey so far.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book

Enjoyed this book, especially the mixing of fact with fiction, the battle between the Shannon and the Chesapeake being the climax, I was disappointed that it ended so abruptly at the end of the battle. Having read a number of accounts of this duel I wanted more which hopefully I will obtain from the next book. Highly recommended a good well read book that suits my tastes anyway.
