The new Bolitho novel from our greatest living naval writer.

"One of our foremost writers of naval fiction" * The Sunday Times * "As you would expect, Kent is a dab hand at plotting and at action scenes, and this novel is another accomplished performance from the old man of the sea" * The First Post * "The storytelling has an easy mastery; the prose is lean and muscular, without a word wasted. How well Kent knows his stuff! Not just the jargon of the high seas - the pawls and maintops and the quarter-boats and the catheads - but the psychology of naval men in uniform" * Sunday Telegraph *
