“Stockwin tells his story with crispness and clarity. His characters are well-drawn, and events happen at a pace to keep readers involved. As always, his display of seamanship savvy is one of the best in the genre” – Navy News

1803. Commander Kydd has sailed with the Royal Navy in the dangerous South Seas, against Napoleon’s fleet in the Mediterranean and to the edge of the known world in a convict ship to Australia, but he is about to discover that the most dangerous waters can be closest to home. Privateers, smugglers, perilous storms and a treacherous coastline all threaten to overcome HMS Teazer. Meanwhile an unlikely rival is seeking her captain’s heart, the beautiful and determined admiral’s daughter.
