Book Overview

As an Irish-Catholic and a reputed coward, Lieutenant George Markham is a marine with something to prove. When his commanding officer is killed at sea, Markham seizes his chance--and finds himself at the helm of a creaky frigate crewed by malcontents. Now, Markham must gain the crew's respect, teach them to fight as a unit, and lead them into the heart of Revolutionary France on a mission they aren't expected to survive.

Compares favorably Richard Sharpe books by Bernard Cornwell

Tom Connery's writing style is easy to read and the story plot line is well laid out. His characters take awhile to develop. The hero of the story, Lieutenant George Markham, is hard to like at first but he grows on you. I have read all the books in the Richard Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell and this book compares favorably to the first book in that saga. This book appears set up for a series (I think the sub tittle ' A Markham of the Marines Novel' suggest that) so we will see if Tom Connery can continue turning out a quality adventure series.
