Until the Sea Shall Give Up Her Dead is masterful maritime fiction - Sean Thomas Russell's latest Charles Hayden voyage. Under the command of the steadfast Captain Charles Hayden, Royal Navy frigate HMS Themis is sent across the Atlantic to counter the threat of the French forces in the West Indies. But before she strikes port in Barbados, the Themis intercepts a single boat adrift in the middle of the ocean - its sole occupants, two young Spanish noblemen. But not is all as it seems with Hayden's unexpected guests. The mystery only deepens as Hayden's ship reaches Barbados, where he must take new orders from the Admiral. Hayden finds his ship in a squadron under the command of the conceited Sir William Jones, who involves Hayden on a course of action so foolhardy that he is faced with losing many of his men. Once again, the Themis is thrown into the most violent of action against the enemy - and Hayden must make the hardest choice of all, life or death? Following the top-ten bestselling success of A Battle Won, Under Enemy Colours and A Ship of War, Sean Thomas Russell's captivating fourth novel Until The Sea Shall Give Up Her Dead is the maritime adventure of 2014. Sean Thomas Russell is a lifelong sailor whose passion for the sea - and his love of nautical history - inspired the adventures of Charles Hayden. His latest book follows bestsellers A Battle Won, Under Enermy Colours and A Ship of War. Sean lives on Vancouver Island.
