9780099591665: The Darkening Sea (Richard Bolitho)

The thrilling twenty-first naval adventure featuring Richard Bolitho.
     Returning safely to England after the dramatic capture of Martinque, Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho finds an all too brief respite from war and politics in the arms of his mistress Catherine Somervell. 
     But the shadow of a new conflict already darkens the horizon. The old enemy, France, forges an uneasy alliance with America -- threatening the safety of British trade routes. Although ordered immediately to the Indian Ocean, for the first time Bolitho's thoughts are not of glory but his own -- and the Navy's -- past. 
     Both Nelson and Collingwood died in their country's service. For the navy's newest Admiral, is there life beyond the sea itself?

About the Author:

ALEXANDER KENT is the author of twenty-eight acclaimed books featuring Richard Bolitho. Under his own name, Douglas Reeman, and in the course of a career spanning forty-five years, he has written over thirty novels and two non-fiction books.

From AudioFile:

The Richard Bolitho sea story series by Alexander Kent has more than twenty volumes and is still going strong. This entry features a mature Bolitho, his enterprising nephew, Adam, and various villains and heroes fighting the French in the Napoleonic era. Like all books in the series, it is half soap opera and half action. Michael Jayston is a superb reader; his somber intonations are perfectly in tune with the older Bolitho, and he slides easily into various British and foreign accents for the other characters. He is not performing, but reading with effortless expressiveness. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
