Captain Hoare investigates occult murders on English coast. This was a good series. Unfortunately the author died after the third book.

The Hoare Cycle continues. He gets command of the Age of Fighting Sail equivalent of a spy ship with a woman sailing master who is also a crypto-analyst. Unfortunately, sailing skills are not a requirement for assignment to this vessel, excepting their rather small first lieutenant who has an outsized voice which compensates, both, for his diminished stature and Hoare's gunshot damaged larynx, Villains, dukes, street thugs and navy bureaucrats, abound for Hoare to thwart as he routs the wretches and foils the plot to overthrow the legal but mad King of England ( )
