The French Revolution is turning in on itself even as the war with the English drags on. As the armies move towards Italy, George Markham and his Marines find themselves assigned to the sloop Sylphide under the impetuous Captain Germain.
Set ashore in the midst of the French army, Markham is charged with escorting a group of loyalists on a secret mission and is soon wishing he was back in the thick of it at sea. His wits and courage are tested to the limits as he tries to untangle the web of subterfuge surrounding young Germain’s insane mission.
Just as Markham looks like making headway, the unexpected arrival of a ghost from his past overturns everything and the fight is on again.

Lt. Markham and his lobsterbacks at it again
It is the third in a series and the crew of these misfits just keep getting more and more interesting on each adventure
Yes, the plot as most of Mr. Donachie's stories have more than a few twist and turns to keep the reader alert. Never in a straight line in these books
I have listened to him in the first two of this series and I can find no fault in his performances, He is one of the true professionals who bring each character to life.
I must admit that the end with the Admiral was a very big surpise it made me want to call someone out to eat grass in the morning
Please continue the story we would enjoy the next adventure of this crew. Don't wait a year to write another PLEASE
