This was the final in a four book set. The same hero and villain have another go at one another, but the final confrontation ends unexpectedly. The author seems to have an anti-war sentiment in the way that he describes the battles etc. He includes a number of atrocities that many authors in the nautical fiction genre ignore, giving it a more somber mood than many of the hip, hip, hooray heroic stories. But it is a good read, and brings a conclusion to the series.

I liked this book. I believe it is the best of this four book series. The captain (Mainwaring) is a true leader, earning the respect of his men. Few naval officers have this leadership ability however you always knew he was the captain. He led by ability. There are a number of turns in this book. From his capture, escape, the lost of his ship, romance and over coming all hardships. In the end he wins. I wish there was more of this character and crew in later books.

The period is interesting, because it's so little covered. Napoleonic wars are amply covered, but the first half of the 18th century is unusual in fiction. A 44-gun 2-decker as a top of the line cruiser sets the tone for the period. Mainwaring has a basic problem that seems to get worse with each book, he is arguably incompetent and pulls things off by the skin of his teeth, or of other people's teeth. The French bad guy is a caricature. I don't think the main character every commands more than 12 people for any length of time, because he always loses the rest... Still it is amusing.

Too far fetched, does not come close to reality at all. Does not know naval tactics that were empowering that period.

A more cunning than usual title arrived at later in the story had me quite on edge waiting to find out who actually was Captain Monsoon . When i did find out, I was greatly amused but won't " spill the beans" so as not to spoil it for other readers.

Author Suthern continues the adventures of Mainwering in this rapidly developing story. Southern is well-versed on nautical terms and ship handling. The plot is well thought out, but how many ships can Mainwering lose before they quit giving him another?

I have read most of the books in this series, and all of them are well-written and I enjoyed them thoroughly. The characters are well written and believable. I look forward to more of the series.
This series, and particularly the fourth and evidently final episode, borders on the implausible. It is so imaginative in its plotting, however, that it can be forgiven for its sometimes over-the-top sequences. It has become one of my most enthralling 18th century naval reads after a lifetime of being hooked on this venue. I can't wait to tackle his next series and hopefully many more to follow.
