bounce I just finished reading Cut and Run Sunday morning , and was swept away. The climactic chase scene had me going, I couldn't get out of bed in the morning until I had finished it. Between the suspense (and all the coffee I drank while reading), I was so jittery! Were they going to get away? I really felt for Tom King and the decision he made and the consequences of it. Very believable, very realistic, and I love the characters. When it comes down to it, for me, it's not about the cannon blasts and slashing cutlasses, its about the human beings.

(Meanwhile Bob, tired of waiting for his Sunday breakfast, went to the galley and fixed it himself. And a second pot of coffee. For both of us, I should add. I took the morning off!)

Thanks for this, Linda. I must say that Cut and Run was certainly a diversion. I didn't wish to continue the series with broadside battles, and to have my "crazy gang" of characters present at every major action would be stretching things rather. The HEIC has fascinated me for a while, and I wanted to give it some attention.

And I agree, it is the characters that matter; times and conditions change, but people are still the same. You only have to look at the contemporary cartoons and caricatures to see the faces of folk you know, or even yourself. Creepy, ain't it?

I just finished this and can only reiterate what the others have said. Just get this - you won't regret it.

I agree with Linda - a terrific book and quite un-put-downable! I especially loved the first part set amongst the HEIC. What a great setting and a wonderfully drawn set of characters. I liked all of it, but I must make a special mention for his principle "villain", a character far more subtle and believable than the evil monsters often created by other authors.

This series is rapidly joining my list of favourites. Thanks Mr Bond!

Well, True Colours is (using modern parlance) 'in the rearview mirror'. So now it's on to Cut and Run and with such good reviews as those above, I know that I'm in for another 'good read'.

But while I'm a 'lover of stout paper books' that sport hardcovers and dust jackets so beautiful that they beg to be framed..........I've got to 'note here and now' that there's something 'sinfully pleasurable' about pressing a key on your computer.....and having a book that you want to read......magically appear.

That bit of modern technology will not keep me from buying the 1st edition hardback of 'the best' of what I read on ebook or kindle.......but rather insure that 'the best' find their way to the shelves of my library.

So 'on with Cut and Run', but again, 'to be dined on'.

Cut and Run has now joined its 3 predesessors on the 1st shelf of my new 'virtual bookcase'. As you can see from the date on my post above, I did take the time 'to dine on it' with a portion reserved for enjoyment each evening.

My 'review', simply put is that it's more of the same.

More good characters added to the ongoing storyline, while old shipmates return and a few 'rotters' make their mark.

More variety as the storyline is shaped by the nautical practices of the EIC.

More action that burns like a 'slow fuse' that gathers you up and carries you along.

In my book (pun intended) there's much to be said for More of the Same

Again........'Thank You Mr. Bond' (has a nice ring to it, don't you think).
