It's June 1793, and the French Revolution threatens to destroy Europe. England's powerful fleet is called upon to control access to the Mediterranean at Gibraltar and support ground actions. But, never fear, bestselling author Alexander Kent's Captain Richard Bolitho mans the warship HYPERION in this winning novel. Michael Jayston juggles multiple characters and accents with aplomb and professionalism. Several passages pin the listener to his headphones with vivid description and dramatic action. Kent raises the stakes emotionally as love for a seaman's sister adds another level of complication to a thrilling climatic battle. R.O. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
