Publisher's Summary

Thomas Kydd, a hero of Trafalgar, holds the glory of being Post-Captain of the 32-gun frigate, L'Aurore. A Caribbean posting seems a welcome respite for the war hero, but when more and more merchantmen begin vanishing from the sea, fear starts to spread. Kydd must embark on a dangerous game of espionage in order to destroy this new and terrible danger to the Empire.

Thomas in another mystery

What did you love best about Caribbee?

It was a great mystery how the French was out smarting the Royal Navy

I enjoyed the recovery of Thomas's servant Tiito, form the planter who wouldn't give him back

Have you listened to any of Christian Rodska’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Without a doubt Mr Rodska is one of the true professional who brings life to his characters in such a way that makes listening almost spell bounding. Keep up the good work

Near the end when the men came forward in Cpt Kidds defense. The old admiral handled it in a way that touched my heart
