Publisher's Summary

Spring 1802. Richard Bolitho is summoned to the Admiralty to receive his orders for a difficult and thankless mission....
The recent Peace of Amiens is already showing signs of strain as old enemies wrangle over colonies won and lost during the war. In the little 64-gun Achates, Bolitho sails west for the Caribbean, to hand over the island of San Felipe to the French. But diplomacy is not enough.

Recently released Titles fill in the Gaps!

More of the Bolitho puzzle has been solved in this book!
How Belinda came to be with Richard, how their child was born.
Importantly, how Adam became a Bolitho and how John Allday was wounded!
All these eventualities continue to add substance to the legend of Richard Bolitho.
The Epilogue provides the news of his Knighthood. A small detail but one which had me wondering just how that came about.
There is no doubt in my mind now that this series is better for the recent releases that cover the gaps in his time at sea.
I have unabashed praise for Michael Jayston's narration & would heartily recommend him to any listeners who are looking to find a really first class exponent of their trade.
I will be moving on to another of the "Fill In"books in a few days after a long road trip next week with Vince Flynn!

Great, as usual

Yet again, we are graced with a book that should be read or listened to by all. A testament to those who stood against a tyrant.
