Publisher's Summary

January 1782, Portsmouth. His Britannic Majesty's frigate Phalarope is ordered to the assistance of the hard-pressed squadrons in the Caribbean. Aboard is her new commander - Richard Bolitho.
To all appearances the Phalarope is everything a young captain could wish for. But beneath the surface she is a deeply unhappy ship - her wardroom torn by petty greed and ambition, her deckhands driven to near mutiny by senseless ill treatment.

Adventure at sea.

Any additional comments?

I bought this because I had exhausted Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey-Maturin series. I loved it, it's a good solid adventure on the high seas. None of the characters seemed as real or three-dimensional as O'Brien's characters, but it's still an excellent, immersive and satisfying maritime tale.
