KK, well I am slowly making my way through all the Bolitho books and so far I have enjoyed every single one, and this one is no exception. However, one thing that has spoiled this instalment is the huge amount of spelling mistakes in it, including exclamation marks being replaced by the number 1. "Close" was often spelled "dose", and sometimes names of ships had neighbouring letters mixed up. It is clear that the publisher had missed this one during proof-reading, which is a shame as all of the previous books were fine.

The story however is great and thoroughly enjoyable. Bolitho is now a Flag Captain which means he is a senior captain and is posted to a three-decker (like HMS Victory is) on which a Vice (or was it Rear) Admiral is in overall command of the small squadron. However this admiral seems to have spent too much time behind a desk shore side and is causing Bolitho some real headaches as he seems indecisive and making bad decisions. On top of this much of the fleet elsewhere has mutinied. An action-packed story which all Bolitho fans will enjoy. Shame about the large number of typos.

It's only a matter of taste but, to be honest, this is the only genre that really grabs my interest. To me AK is a great writer and holds your attention throughout, backed by his knowledge of British history, the mechanics of sailing and understanding of human relationships.

Action and intrigue make this an excellent exciting story. The battle scenes are wonderfully described in minute detail giving the reader the impression of actually witnessing the events.

It is a pity there are so many printing errors which detract from the overall enjoyment whilst reading the book.
