KIRKUS REVIEW

The ninth in the Captain Richard Bolitho series about an 18th-century British naval hero, this time becalmed in Sydney, New South Wales, where convicts are sent. Searching for pirates, Bolitho finds himself ordered to the Great South Sea where the Bounty has recently been taken over by mutineers. Soon enough he finds himself cast in the Bligh role and striving through 500 miles of open sea in a longboat with only a compass, barest provisions, and his starcrossed lady-love Viola. The writing is as noble as the line of Bolitho's jaw.
