Publisher's Summary

Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar removed the spectre of invasion and England is now free to seek conquests and colonies in the furthest reaches of the world. Captain Kydd joins an expedition to take Dutch-held Cape Town, a strategic imperative to secure the rich trade-route to India. But even if the British can defeat the enemy and take possession of the capital, there is still more fighting to be done. Kydd and his men must defend the fragile colony from attacks by the enemy from all sides, while braving the wild beasts and hostile environment of Africa's vast and savage hinterland.

Starts slow, then GO!

Stockton puts together an exciting romp in this story. Although the beginning gets bogged down in historical details (although interesting, not compelling enough to NOT use the sleep timer at night on the Audible App.) Then, suddenly, Nicholas Renzy becomes center stage pursuing the rumor of a secret military action by the French. Unbeknownst to him, Kidd is working the same angle from the naval side. It ends up with them meeting in the jungle of South Africa with an all-or-nothing gambit to secure the colony for the British.
