Fletcher and the Samurai

1797: Fletcher is sent halfway round the world aboard the frigate Euphonides to fight not the French nor the Spanish, but the British East India Company. The Company already owns India, and under the charismatic Director Kilbride, it wants to invade Japan and be independent of England. Fletcher is ordered by Lord Spencer, the First Sea Lord, to stop Kilbride by any means necessary.

His adventure soon tangles with that of the young Samurai lord Masahito, sent to England to get western cannons and muskets for an imminent Japanese civil war. Fighting free of a deadly trap in India, Fletcher reaches Japan with Masahito as the Samurai war begins...

From boisterous Georgian London to the exotic east, Fletcher and the Samurai is the fifth instalment of the Fletcher Series.
