My third book of this series that I've downloaded. Based on a true naval and land battle (or series of battles) in the Indian Ocean. Great historical references to the value of espionage during wartime. If you're addicted to these books this is just one more you'll have to get.

I began the series after a friend recommended Master and Commander to me knowing how much I enjoyed reading the C.S. Forrester, "Horatio Hornblower" series.
I'd recommend these to fan of naval action, especially to any fan who enjoys subplots of life intertwined in a book.
The first three audio books I purchased were narrated by Patrick Tull. #3 and #4 were by Simon Vance. I would not recommend anything narrated by Simon Vance. He lent a particularly cartoonish flavour to the books that set my teeth on edge.
Luckily, Audible was able to obtain #4 and #5 with Patrick Tull. Mr. Tull's characterizations were more in keeping with the situations and characters. Mr's Vance's, on the other hand, danced on the edge of being a cross between the "League of British Gentlemen" and a Monty Python skit.
I'd would buy any of this series narrated by Mr. Tull.
