Among the great authors of seafaring adventure tales on audio--such as Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester--Lambdin is now emerging into his own. His Alan Lewrie series already includes more than a dozen books. In this one, Lewrie and his king's ship PROTEUS are bouncing around the Caribbean fighting the pre-Bonaparte Republican French. John Lee's reading is impeccable. His accents, French and American as well as British, are individualized and spot-on. Even as a French villain from previous books attempts to bring him down, Lewrie turns the tables through tactical shrewdness. Most enjoyable.
