Hard to imagine 'this plot' could get any thicker, but it seems it has. Should make for an interesting read.

Time for a lesson in naval architecture for Mr Donachie

The plot has become tedious and bordering on ridiculous. Frankly I couldn't care less and if it wasn't for the fact that I read in bed at night and the Pearce  saga is more effective than any sleeping potion, I would have given up a long time ago.
On the same theme, when is Mr Donachie going for his marine architecture lesson? I had hoped his constant  errors in onboard detail would have been addressed in the Astrodene interview?! I referred to the raised poop of the frigate in his first book and now we are sailing about the Med in a brig with a lower deck gun battery!!! I don't think so! Armed cutters with wheels instead of tillers ! The list goes on!!

I've never read Donachie's John Pearce series for it's 'technical achievement' for Tony is correct. However, as I 'droned' my way through this latest offering, I too would have fallen asleep were I not in the process of marching my way up Artillery Hill as I 'listened to Perils of Command on my IPhone.................and then, "BAM" (and I was 'stunned')....... and very quickly I was drawn into awaiting the next chapter in the saga.

And when I previously stated that "the plot thickened".......it was prophetic.
