About Book

Library Journal
"When all your Patrick O'Brians are out, recommend Marryat."

Joseph Conrad
". . . [Marryat's] greatness is undeniable"

Virginia Woolf

Alexander Kent
. "This was Marryat's navy, his world, and no one brings it to us with greater authenticity."

Book Description
William Seymour grows up on shipboard in the Royal Navy, after his father is hanged during the mutiny at the Nore (1797), and later, he is impressed into the crew of a daring smuggler. This amusing and exciting novel blends in the classic true tale of an English captain who deliberately lost his frigate on a lee shore, in order to wreck a French line-of-battle ship.
