Product description


Praise for Julian Stockwin - -

Another thundering good read for those who love seagoing stories in the Hornblower mould - Peterborough Evening Telegraph

I was soon turning the pages almost indecently fast . . . Roll on, the promised adventures of Kydd and Renzi. - Independent on KYDD

Stockwin paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line... the harsh naval discipline, the rancid food, and the skill of the common sailor are all skilfully evoked. - Daily Express on KYDD

In Stockwin's hands the sea story will continue to entrance readers across the world. - Guardian on KYDD

The appeal of the story is in the telling, which is atmospheric, authentic ... The author had a long career in the Royal Navy, which adds to his prose that extra dash of salty realism. - Publishing News on MUTINY

Kydd: the Admiral's Daughter by Julian Stockwin (Hodder & Stoughton, 360 pp, ?18.99, ISBN 9780 3408 9859 8); eighth in the saga, located this time in the western approaches and coasts of Devon and Cornwall, with smuggling and privateering well to the fore. - Naval Review

Superbly balanced narrative - Nautical Magazine
