Captain Hornblower's first task on his new ship, HMS ATROPOS, is to direct the aquatic funeral procession of the venerable Admiral Horatio Nelson. With British royalty and all the admiralty as spectators, the barge bearing the hero's coffin springs a lethal leak, threatening to sink Hornblower's military future in the Thames. Geoffrey Howard's command of C. S. Forester's sea of words in the popular nautical novels brings new life to the digitally remastered audiobooks the whole family will love. Howard's skill maximizes the author's dry sense of humor, adding a delightful dimension to the prose that has made this series so popular for so long. J.A.H.
