Publisher's Summary

Twenty-five years ago HMS Terrapin was part of a crack hunter/killer group in the Battle of the Atlantic. Now she is working out her last commission in the Gulf of Thailand.
To Lieutenant-Commander Standish, the frigate seems to mark the end of his hopes of a career in the navy. Then a new captain arrives, a man driven by an old-fashioned, almost obsessive patriotism. And under his stubborn leadership, Standish and the crew discover a long-forgotten unity of purpose.

It's a good book

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

David Rintoul is a pleasure to listen to as ever

Any additional comments?

I would have given the story 3.5 out of 5. <br/>It’s personal preference rather than a rating of the story quality. <br/>The story has action, intrigue and builds to a fulfilling end but with a story line of injustice. <br/>As is discussed in the prologue as the subject of the book. <br/>And thankfully it doesn’t not have too much love story blurb.

Spoiled by ludicrous love story!

Once again Reeman pans out a story with a completely unbelievable and unnecessary love interest. Also the independent actions by the main character would not have been allowed to happen, if he indeed would have been allowed another command. Disappointing!
