The story starts with the Battle of the Nile and then races through many an adventure and skirmish in the company of Nathan Peake. It is the sixth in the series and a must for his fans. He is very good. However if you are looking for historical naval adventure then you would be advised to start at the beginning of this series else you miss too much. Start with The Time of Terror.

If you like Seth Hunter you might also like to read books by Julian Stockwin, David Donachie and Patrick O'Brian.

Synopsis

The Spoils of Conquest by Seth Hunter

The Mouth of the Nile, 9th August, 1798: Admiral Nelson has sent Captain Nathan Peake on a desperate journey across the Middle East to convey a grim warning to British India. Bonaparte's army is poised to deliver a fatal blow to the source of Britain's wealth and power by marching overland to India. Arriving in Bombay, Nathan takes command of the East India Company's naval wing - the Bombay Marine - an under-armed and poorly crewed flotilla of sloops and gunboats. With these meagre resources he must stop the flow of French supplies to their Indian ally and protect the Company's trade from the pirates and privateers swarming in the Bay of Bengal. But when Nathan discovers the truth behind the East India Company's honourable facade he confronts some tough personal choices - and a crisis of conscience even more threatening than the enemy.
