"Critics . . . dubbed Kent a worthy successor to C.S. Forester. . . . This hardly seems fair, for Kent's writing is fresh, singular, and worthy of judgement solely on its own high merit." —Philadelphia Bulletin
"Tales of stout men under sail, hurling iron across the water at one another were absolute dynamite in the early 19th century. . . . Now that Alexander Kent is patrolling the same sea lanes, the stories are as good as ever." —The New York Times
As the American Revolution rages on the mainland, the British Navy prepares for action at sea. Against a growing fleet of American and French privateers, the navy must maintain its blockade of Washington's vital military supplies. Caught up in the turmoil, junior officer Richard Bolitho finds himself having to make momentous decisions in the heat of battle—decisions that could affect the lives of many men and, perhaps, even the fate of nations.
