This is a fine adventure romp with our rogue British sea-officer hero. Fun as it is, I read it while I was re-reading Patrick O'Brian's wonderful novels set in a similar period and the difference is, to quote Mark Twain, like that "between lightning and a lightning bug."

I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult.
Another good Dewey Lambdin read about his fictional British Sea Officer, Alan Lewrie, during the Napoleonic Wars, this time in the Mediteranean Sea. This the 8th book in this series.Recommended to lovers of this genre.

A bit drawn out but there were their moments when I just couldn't lay the dame book down. What to come I wonder.
