1803. Tensions are escalating again between England and France. While the Royal Navy launches reconnaissance, rescue missions and spies on the continent, French privateer ships are lurking in English waters poised to strike at British trade. Smugglers, perilous storms and a treacherous coastline all threaten to overcome HMS Teazer as her men fight to gain control of the seas around Cornwall and Devon. Meanwhile an unlikely rival is seeking her captain's heart. The beautiful and determined admiral's daughter could be the key to realising all Kydd's hopes and ambitions. But high society, he finds, can be as treacherous as his first mistress - the sea.

Reviews

Praise for Julian Stockwin -- - 'Another thundering good read for those who love seagoing stories in the Hornblower mould' -- Peterborough Evening Telegraph 'I was soon turning the pages almost indecently fast ... Roll on, the promised adventures of Kydd and Renzi.' -- Independent on KYDD 'Stockwin paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line... the harsh naval discipline, the rancid food, and the skill of the common sailor are all skilfully evoked.' -- Daily Express on KYDD 'In Stockwin's hands the sea story will continue to entrance readers across the world.' -- Guardian on KYDD 'The appeal of the story is in the telling, which is atmospheric, authentic ... The author had a long career in the Royal Navy, which adds to his prose that extra dash of salty realism.' -- Publishing News on MUTINY 'Kydd: the Admiral's Daughter by Julian Stockwin (Hodder & Stoughton, 360 pp, GBP18.99, ISBN 9780 3408 9859 8); eighth in the saga, located this time in the western approaches and coasts of Devon and Cornwall, with smuggling and privateering well to the fore.' -- Naval Review 20080201
