One more in Woodman series. I liked it.

More of a talker than a action story
Bumand
Second in a series by the excellent Richard Woodman that never quite took off in the same way that the Nathaniel Drinkwater series has. Set in an earlier time of the mid 17th Century, Kite is an entrepreneur and businessman rather than the confirmed navy type, and this reflects in the flow of the story; there is not the same action and pace, although there is plenty of intrigue.

Kite is now a partner in an established shipping firm, but cholera is on the loose ...

Stunned by the loss of his son and the fetish suicide of his wife, Kite is galvanised into action by the news of a conspiracy by his erstwhile colleagues. Little realising the extent of the censure arising from his marriage to a black princess, he handed control of his business to his partner, who was secretly in dire pecuniary straits. The partner's death played into the hands of his creditors who are about to fleece Kite, who, thanks to a loyal employee, spikes their guns.

As always with Mr Woodman, a worthwhile read from a man who is steeped in the romance of the sea. ****

This middle volume of the William Kite series is actually the first of the trilogy that I have read, but I am compelled to read the rest. This narrative is quite different than your run-of-the-mill sea fiction in that it treats a civilian's perspective of the war at sea and charts the development of the protagonist from isolated merchant skipper to a driven privateersman. It is particularly noteworthy in two respects--Kite is very much a real person and does not suffer from an incredible/implausible list of infallibly heroic traits--Kite sees the American "patriots" in a strikingly de-mystifying way.

The book's style is influenced by Victorian writers in general. I sniffed a particularly strong dose of Dickens, which is, of course, a good thing. Highly recommended for those interested in a meaty read before the fireplace.

Author Woodman has again displayed his great skill as a writer of nautical fiction, using many of the facts around the Battle of Bunker / Breeds Hill. His characters, settings, and dialogue are realistic and the plot is excellent.

This entire story is just infuriating and unbelievable. Spoiler, if you really care. - Kite manages to capture the man who stole his ship and murdered his wife's father by stripping him naked. covering him with tar and then burning him alive. in the street. Many men are killed and the man manages to burn Kite's ship rather than to let him have it back. I expect a hanging for piracy in the least but Kite just lets the man go. I thought that the fact that husbands in the story were quite happy to have other man have sex with their wives with their blessings was a bit far fetched but that was just too much.
