Adam Bolitho and his ship HMS Unrivalled are in the West Indies attempting to enforce the ban on slavery. But the navy is stretched to the limit, with ships laid up and appointments for captains and senior officers hard to find. There is bitter rivalry, as well as the discomfort of working with ships and sailors who have only recently been deadly enemies. And Adam and the Unrivalled are in the thick of it.

Mar 01, 2010

Antigua, 1817 and every harbour and estuary is filled with ghostly ships, the famous and the legendary now redundant in the aftermath of war. In this uneasy peace, Adam Bolitho is fortunate to be offered the seventy-four gun Athena, and as flag captain to Vice-Admiral Sir Graham Bethune once more follows his destiny to the Caribbean.
But in these haunted waters where Richard Bolitho and his 'band of brothers' once fought a familiar enemy, the quarry is now a renegade foe who flies no colours and offers no quarter, and whose traffic in human life is sanctioned by flawed treaties and men of influence. And here, when Athena's guns speak, a day of terrible retribution will dawn for the innocent and the damned.
