9780099594086: Beyond the Reef (Richard Bolitho)

The exciting chronological sequel to the previous Bolitho adventure -- The Only Victor.
     In March 1808, as Napoleon holds Portugal and threatens his old ally Spain, Vice-Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho is dispatched once more to the Cape of Good Hope to establish a permanent naval force there. 
     Setting aside his bitter memories and the anguish of a friendship betrayed, Bolitho takes passage in the ill-fated Golden Plover. With him sail others commanded by duty and lured by danger -- and those who wish only to escape. 
     But when shipwreck and disaster overtake the Golden Plover off the desolate coast of Africa, neither the innocent nor the damned are spared. Beyond the tortured hell of the reef, Bolitho's battle begins -- to summon the survivors' last reserves of courage and of hope.

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:

Part of a series of early nineteenth-century English naval war stories, this novel traces the feats of the glorious Vice Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho during the Napoleonic Wars. Jayston expertly handles the varying accents of the characters, from the upper crust to the victims of the press gangs. As spoken by Jayston, the commands of the officers, wise comments of the older soldiers, and frightened outbursts of the young boys and landlubbers take the listener right aboard ship. Also noteworthy is Jayston's narration of the mighty power of storms at sea, cannon fire and other naval attractions. A must for naval war buffs. J.D.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
