'In Stockwin's hands the sea story will continue to entrance readers across the world' - Guardian More than a decade ago, Thomas Kydd and Nicholas Renzi were in the Caribbean as sailors before the mast in the old Trajan. Now Kydd, a storied hero of Trafalgar, holds the glory of being post-captain of the 32-gun frigate, L'Aurore. After unremitting war a Caribbean posting seems a welcome respite. But Kydd and Renzi soon find themselves facing a familiar threat as the French imperil Britain's vital sugar trade. When merchantmen begin vanishing from the sea, Kydd and Renzi must embark on a dangerous game of espionage, seamanship and breath-taking action in order to destroy a new and terrible danger to the Empire. ********************* What readers are saying about CARIBBEE 'A proper swashbuckling affair' - 5 stars 'Totally amazing!' - 5 stars 'Loved this book' - 5 stars 'A real find' - 5 stars 'A gripping read' - 5 stars
