Summary

Spring 1792. A troubled peace with France means that even a frigate captain as famous as Richard Bolitho is forced to swallow his pride and visit the Admiralty daily to plead for a ship. But, as the clouds of war begin to rise once more over the Channel, all he is offered is command of three topsail cutters. His task is to track down deserters, but the 'Brotherhood' he comes up against are brutal and dangerous. When a King's ransom is in peril and Bolitho is ordered to proceed 'with all despatch' to recover it, he will need all the loyalty and courage of his three gallant cutters if he is to fulfill his mission.

"Michael Jayston is a delight to the ear. His crisp voice easily moves from narrative to conversation and from character to character without missing a beat." (AudioFile)
