Summary:

1783: His Majesty's secret agent

Fresh from war in the Americas, young navy veteran Alan Lewrie finds London pure pleasure. Then, at Plymouth he boards the trading ship Telesto, to find out why merchantmen are disappearing in the East Indies. Between the pungent shores of Calcutta and teaming Canton, Lewrie-reunited with his scoundrel father-discovers a young French captain, backed by an armada of Mindanaon pirates, on a plundering rampage. While treaties tie the navy's hands, a King's privateer is free to plunge into the fire and blood of a dirty little war on the high South China Sea.

Ladies' man, officer, and rogue, Alan Lewrie is the ultimate man of adventure. In the worthy tradition of Hornblower, Aubrey, and Maturin, his exploits echo with the sounds of crowded ports and the crash of naval warfare.

    I enjoyed the book. Over the years I’ve seen quite a few Swashbuckling movies. I can say that I enjoy them. This book fills in the minutia of how the voyages get financed, stocked and manned. It’s more book, chapter, and verse of the details of what the Royal sailors lives were like day to day. The narrator gives you the Lingo in a true to life cadence. It can be difficult to keep up in parts, but it filled in some blanks of the Privateer experience.
