About this title

Synopsis:

In the eighth book of this popular series, Thomas Kydd and Nicholas Renzi return to England in 1803 after tumultuous episodes on the other side of the world to find England in peril of starvation and bankruptcy. Kydd is placed back in command of his beloved vessel, Teazer, but he barely has time to prep her for the sea when he is sent on an urgent mission. Smugglers, enemy privateers, and treacherous sea conditions await Kydd on his journey to northern France on the eve of war, but equally worrisome events are occurring ashore. A growing attachment to the admiral’s daughter curbs Kydd’s blissful reunion with Teazer and he is forced to make a terrible decision that may cause the end of his friendship with Renzi or the end of his naval career.

From the Author:

This is the first book in the Kydd series set in Home Waters. Ironically, I've found this as wild and exotic a location as any, with spectacle ranging from the iron-bound coast to the incredible complex of the Plymouth naval base and dockyard. Certainly in those pre-factory times it was the wonder of the age, employing so many thousands of men.

No-one in England lives far from the sea and a strong and abiding relationship with Neptune's realm is a national characteristic, but it is perhaps in the West Country, where I set this book , that the maritime heritage is strongest. Since time immemorial, the sea has provided food and transport links between isolated communities, and with hundreds of miles of rocky coastline and winter storms equal to any, it has also been the graveyard of so many ships.

This book was great fun to write, but it also presented some new challenges to me as a writer. I hope you enjoy it!
