Kydd Sea Adventures - A Kydd Sea Adventure

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In the 10th book of the popular series, rumors fly of Napoleon’s planned invasion of England, and British naval commander Thomas Kydd is sent to liaise with American inventor, Robert Fulton, who has created “infernal machines” that can wreak mass destruction from a distance. Fulton believes that his inventions, namely the submarine and torpedo, will win the day for the power that possesses them, and Kydd must help him develop the devices. Despite his own scruples, believing that standing man-to-man is the only honorable way to fight, Kydd agrees to take part in the crucial testing of these weapons of mass destruction, which just may decide the fate of England.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 24, 2009 – Stockwin's by-the-numbers 10th Kydd sea adventure opens as commander Thomas Kydd reclaims the helm of his sloop-of-war, Teazer, bringing along old friend and confidant Nicholas Renzi. Kydd, a former rakish corsair, is assigned to join in the coastal defenses of Britain against the invasion by Napoleon's forces, but after engaging in some heavy sea action, Kydd chafes under his new post as nursemaid to the Sea Fencibles, the ragtag local defenses. Meanwhile, scholarly former spy Renzi is dispatched to Paris to secretly meet with American inventor Robert Fulton, who has designed and built a submarine for Napoleon. His mission, to bribe Fulton into switching his allegiances, steals the show as Kydd mucks around with the maritime amateurs. Stockwin doesn't stray from his successful formula in this outing; series readers should be pleased.

I do hope the Kidd series will go on to see 20 books or more. I look forward to the next book way before I finish the one I am reading. It is a rare thing to find this kind writing today. Thank you!
