The year is 1805 and England is at war. At the end of the last novel, "Touch and Go," Richard DeLancey was a commander returning home to England as a peace treaty was signed. This novel (copyright 1978) finds DeLancey married to Fiona, a former actress. He has just been brought back onto active service, promoted to captain, and been given the older 32-gun frigate Laura for service at the Cape, in the Far East, and in the Indian Ocean. He must part from his young wife for an unknown period of time.
He has the usual assignments, including convoy escort, and is given a special assignment to chase down a French privateer. He also seeks his long-lost brother. He has exploits in escorting a convoy of East Indiamen attacked by French ships, and participating in the capture of Mauritius (repeated to some extent by the fictional James Aubrey in later novels written by Patrick O'Brien). After taking command of a different frigate, DeLancey finds a creative way to bring the ship's crew up to full strength (losses from disease and battles had been high). He then wins honors for himself and his crew in a final confrontation with the French.

Probably the best book of the series. An interesting tale, probably more realistic than some of other writers of this genre, and an enjoyable read. It was well done, by an accomplished craftsman, worth the time to read it if you enjoy sea stories. The ultimate sea battle, reminiscent of the real battle between the USS Constitution and the HMS Levant and HMS Cyane, was truly epic.

Took almost two months to drag myself through the entire series. A glimmer of a great idea buried in the debris of poor writing and continuity, let along consistency. The author is a naval historian with no naval background, a man who writes naval history and books on economics. Fiction must have been a hobby. Wasn’t worth the time and certainly not worth the ebook price.

I have enjoyed the series and was not disappointed by this book. The book was imaginative and entertaining throughout, Unlike a couple of other nautical novels I have recently read.
Cordanara
I like almost all nautical fiction, solid read and this series ranks only behind Forester and Dewey Lambdin in my opinion.
Gldasiy
This author ranks with the best of the Napoleonic sea war authors. As good as any of them out there. need to read this series from the start as each book uses its predessessor for its basis
I have read the entire series. Each was a page turner. I am somewhat saddened to turned the last page. I wish there were more stories to tell. I loved the series.
