Perkins created a marvelous character in Bartholomew Hoare, a brilliant naval officer in King George III's navy who could not be promoted to captain of his own ship because his throat was injured in a battle and he could not make himself heard in giving commands. But his work on land impressed his superiors and, with a motley crew and a tiny ship, he is doing important work in counterespionage. Now he is living on land with his new wife and adopted daughter and trying to ferret out a traitor in the high levels of the Admiralty. A high ranking officer is murdered, and Hoare's activities endanger not only him but his wife and daughter.

With a painstaking attention to authenticity, Perkins has delighted readers of naval historical fiction. But, unfortunately for us all, he is also the late Wilder Perkins, and Hoare and the Matter of Treason is the last book of the too-short series.

Reviews

Praise for Hoare and the Matter of Treason

“Crammed with minor characters, subplots, and confrontations, along with a surfeit of ship and sailing lore. Lovers of sea stories and English history will be saddened that Perkins's death in 1999 has brought the series to an end.” —Kirkus Reviews
