Exciting page turner.I found myself driving around just to hear more.Patrick O Brian and Jack Aubrey,CS Forester and Horatio Hornblower are great listens that I highly reccomend, but Alexander Kent and the narrator,Michael Jayston...WOW !! They really give you your money's worth from the get go.Interesting characters,multiple exciting battle scenes....a genuine "feel" for life at sea during the Napoleonic wars.
It is such a treasure to find books like this to listen to.Trust me.If this sounds like your cup of tea,you will quickly exhaust the remaining Alexander Kent titles and THEN move on to CS Forrester and Patrick O'Brian if you haven't already............AUDIBLE !!Get us more stuff like this !!

This was my first Alexander Kent book. It was great and so was Michael Jayston's narration. I am now going to see if Audible has the first in this series and see if I can read them in order. The 1790 sea stories are my favorite period. Kent did a super job with the battle scenes, I felt as if I was right in the middle of it.

A good old yarn of sea warfare, much to keep the listener entertained, a tale of hardy folk.
very good reading keeps one interested all the way through to the point that you cant turn it off enjoyed this book.
Alexander Kent puts the story over so well with the voice changing for the different caricters.
will only purchase books read by Alexander Kent.
wonderful story's if you like old navel traditions when the ships were under sail.
and now on to the next one.
