February 1813: As American privateers pick off British and Canadian ships in the wake of the War of 1812, Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho returns to Halifax to defend Crown property. In the cold waters off Nova Scotia, he fights fruitless skirmishes with men of the frontier, all the while longing for peace.

Alexander Kent, pen name of Douglas Edward Reeman, joined the British Navy at 16, serving on destroyers and small craft during World War II, and eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant. He has taught navigation to yachtsmen and has served as a script adviser for television and films. His books have been translated into nearly two dozen languages.From AudioFile:
Any fan of Forester's Horatio Hornblower novels or O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin sea stories will enjoy Kent's long-running series. In this entry, Captain Adam Bolitho commands a frigate and his uncle, Admiral Richard Bolitho, a fleet in Canadian waters during the War of 1812. Herein are lots of spectacular sea fights and lots of soap-opera-like visions of the characters' personal lives. Reader Michael Jayston has a somber British voice; he reads deliberately and somehow conveys the sense that the listener is with him. The strong emotions of the characters are put across with subtlety and skill in his low-key approach. D.W. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
