Another Good Story

I believe Donachie is one of the best maritime fiction author's. His command of the language and skill at plot development is excellent. There were few errors in his books, only missuse of words like appraise instead of appraise.

As good as his previous books which I have read and really enjoyed and always enjoy being able to pick up where the last book finished. If you like maritime books then David Donachie is the man to read.
