1815, the Napoleonic Wars are over. Yet peace continues to elude Horatio Hornblower overseas; As an admiral struggling to impose order in the chaotic aftermath of the French wars, Horatio Hornblower, Commander-in-chief of His Majesty's ships and vessels in the West Indies, must still face savage pirates, reckless revolutionaries and a violent hurricane. And while his retirement at half-pay might well be in sight, Hornblower will need every ounce of his rapier wit and quick thinking and not to mention his courage and leadership; to ensure that the lasting peace in Europe reaches the turbulent seas of the West Indies.

Please Note: This book has also been published under the title Admiral Hornblower in the West Indies
