In the King's Name Book 28:The Bolitho Novels

1819: Captain Adam Bolitho must make a fast passage from Plymouth to Freetown in West Africa with secret orders for the senior officer there. The slave trade has been declared illegal but over a hundred thousand slaves are shipped out annually, the profit considered worth the risk of interception by the Royal Navy.

For Adam, newly married, it seems an unfortunate mission. And with ships in every harbor paid off or waiting to be scrapped, and their officers cut loose without hope of future commands, Adam soon finds himself the object of envy and jealousy with far-reaching effects. In Africa he will discover unexpected allies and face an enemy far more powerful and ruthless than any he has known before . . .
