Abstract:

"In this seventh book of the series, Thomas Kydd has his own command at last: the brig-sloop Teazer! But Kydd must race the clock to make her battle ready to defend Malta against Barbary pirates and the French who are frantically trying to rescue the remnants of their army in the Levant. Then peace is suddenly declared, and the young captain finds himself ashore on half pay. To make ends meet, he agrees to transport convicts to Australia. Little does he know that his friend Renzi, weakened by illness and embittered with the service, is also bound for the colony as a settler. There, at the ends of the earth, they will be forced to face their deepest fears and prove themselves against all odds" --Publisher description.
