Recently promoted to Rear Admiral, Rupert Buck's flag flies aloft HMS Trident as his squadron is formed. Captain Sir Gabriel Anthony, England's latest hero, has been chosen as flag captain. What was to have been a routine mission has suddenly been changed by the Foreign Services Office. American privateers have joined with the French to raid British convoys returning from the Indian Ocean. Buck's squadron has to immediately weigh anchor and rush to meet this new threat.
A sudden crisis develops and Gabe suddenly finds himself thrust into command of the squadron. Follow the ships and men under Rear Admiral Buck's flag as they raid a neutral fort, battle the elements and face a powerful enemy with cannons blazing.
Praise for Trident
Reading Michael Aye's books is like listening to an old salt as he relates tales from the past. His stories are bright, bold and brim filled with action while underlying all is the deep and natural rhythm of the sea.-Alaric Bond.
