Anyone who has read the Richard Bolitho series will agree that Alexander Kent (real name--Douglas E. Reeman) is on a par with any naval fiction writer to date. As a former Royal Navy officer, Kent brings a unique and insightful point of veiw to his characters. This particular novel is rich with action, as well as the naval politics. Pipe yourself aboard and enjoy the ride.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I have just finished Cross of St George and In the King's Name.
Before I say more, I’ve listen to the complete Alexander Kent Bolitho
series as well as the complete Master and Commander, Hornblower, Two
years before the mast and many many others. These two have got to be
the worst sailing books I’ve listened to by far. It’s hard to believe Kent even
wrote them. The story line is, well I’m not sure what the story line was! Rambling
and full of phrases used over and over from passed books. Retrospective and introspective at the same time. All previous books are 5 stars. I came very close
to not finishing these two.
Would you ever listen to anything by Alexander Kent again?
