The greatest naval trial in the Georgian period is underway at Portsmouth with the court martial of Sir Home Popham, Captain Sir Thomas Kydd’s commanding officer in the doomed occupation of Buenos Aires. Kydd has some sympathy for Popham’s unauthorised action but his support for his former commander leaves him athwart some very influential people in the Admiralty.

With his frigate L’Aurore unfit for sea, Kydd is given a commission that some hope will destroy his career. Tyger has recently mutinied but instead of having her company dispersed around the fleet as is customary, the ship is pressed into immediate service in the North Sea. Kydd faces a crew still under some malign influence.

Enemies aboard and on the high seas are just the start of the problem. Soon he will have to take his untested and untrustworthy crew into the Baltic and there they will get entangled with Napoleon’s invasion of Prussia. The stakes are desperate, the task seemingly impossible and the French implacable. But the only way for Kydd to avoid disgrace is to gamble his reputation and crew on a crazy mission to snatch a Prussian division out of the jaws of Napoleon’s advancing army. Will he return home once more a hero, or himself face a court martial?

(Out Now!)

  2. Hi, Why has Audible.com stopped selling the Tyger audiobook? They seem to have all of the others in the series.

  7. About to begin Tyger after cruising through the series at flank speed. I just wanted to offer a quick note of thanks for your work — and a special word of appreciation for your devotion to the craft. Not every writer in your position takes the time and trouble to improve his writing style as he extends his saga; you made a good start and have gotten steadily stronger. Best wishes for the holidays.

  14. Big Jules .. the cover for the U.K. release MIGHT have been enhanced if only the artist had illustrated Kydd’s fabulous sword purchased in Gibraltar, complete with Cornish Choughs depicted.

  16. Heart-warming to see the author replying personally. I read up to the admirals daughter when I teenager with dyslexia and the series was really influential in getting me to read anything. Now catching up after having found them in my local library!

  17. Worked through to Betrayal so catching you up. Enjoyed them all. I enjoyed Patrick O’brian’s books as well. What are the book sequences now before Tyger? Thanks for the pleasure given. John

  18. Any idea as to when TYGER which is to be released in both UK and US in October will be available in Kindle version?
    Thanx for any info you can provide?
