A good entry in this fine series as Kydd takes the Tyger to the Baltic. Much intrigue is afoot as Bonaparte closes Europe to Britain's lifeblood; commerce and trade by sea. Stockwin brings light to an area generally overlooked in the usual "Age of Sail" venue. His life is enriched by his new wife, Persephone, a new protege, and a recovered friendship. ( )
