    1. I enjoy the books of this genre a great deal Woodman s Drinkwater series is a collection worthy of the company of Forester and O Brian However, this particular work wasn t quite as rousing as previous books This book was about clumsy political intrigues than about nautical adventure It was still a good book but nothing special.


    2. Regrettably, this is the first of the Nathaniel Drinkwater series that I have found not to be excellent Drinkwater is assigned by Lord Dungarth, head of the British Secret Service, to take a shipment of military stores to Russia, in the hope that when the French learn of the shipment, they will believe Tsar Alexander is no longer adhering to the terms of the Peace of Tilsit The play out of this mission consumes the entire book.Unfortunately, much of the intrigue and the narrative is obtuse, leav [...]


    3. I gave it 4 stars on the benefit of the doubt because I enjoyed previous Drinkwater novels Not really enough action, too much emphasis on intrigue But I m still a fan of Drinkwater and look forward to reading the next installment.


    4. Not the attitude adjustment Drinkwater needed as, after losing his quartermaster in the previous entry, he may well lose his friend Mr Q Not only is he not the master of his own destiny, Nat finds himself hip deep in intrigue for the Secret Services far from home in a less than friendly, albeit pragmatic, environments.


    5. One of the weaker Heyer romances, due mainly to the character of Kit s mother Although the reader is told repeatedly that she is charming, the character utterly fails to charm As she is a central character, and Heyer seems fond of her, much of the book was spent gritting my teeth Fun and likeable hero and heroine do make up for it a bit.


    6. Perhaps the darkest of all the writers of this sub group of historical fiction The opening scenes in a brothel would never make it into a Hornblower novel but the subsequent events have a ring of authenticity and certainly show a accurate picture of the events of its time.



    7. Enjoyed reading the whole series for the nautical references and the historical interest Good page turners.
