5.0 out of 5 stars A very good read 18 Oct 2008
By Dr J
This is now the second book (since the 3 Midshipman Bolitho novels have been compacted into one edition) in Kent's Bolitho series. Kent's writing style is easy to follow and this book can be knocked off pretty quickly. There is plenty of action and various plot twists that all come together at the end. I liked the fact that this book is neither a collection of various adventures nor one big long story, but somewhere in between. If you like a series that is easy to read and has lots of action, then this is the series for you.

One blemish, though--there's a girl (and many a good war book or movie was ruined by a love interest.) I'd say this gal is totally unneeded, but I think the reader can relate to Bolitho's feelings. So, I won't take off a star.

A very good and exciting story, as an ex-royal navy man with an interest in 1750`s/1790`s your imagination leads you being there on the ship and its crew. Excellent read- couldn't put the book down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bolitho Belter 18 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bolitho in his first frigate as a Lieutenant sees him engaged in a number of incidents in a peacetime Atlantic trying to recover lost Spanish bullion. These are well written stories, full of sailing ship details, albeit a bit sanitised. Good holiday reads for lads of all ages.
