Sid Smith, winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, described by the Times Literary Supplement as "one of Britain's most original authors", introduces wicked Josiah Nisbet, Horatio Nelson's (real-life) stepson, and his (not so real) adventures.
Captain Nisbet, the Royal Navy's most villainous and incompetent officer, is back at sea. More dangerous to his shipmates than to the enemy, this time he confronts the greatest threat of all - Napoleon's invasion army camped on the Channel coast.
One battle will end that threat - Trafalgar. One hero will win that battle - Nelson. And one villain will kill that hero in the moment of his triumph.
Fast, funny, and outrageous, "Nisbet and Trafalgar" solves the greatest murder mystery in naval history - who killed Admiral Nelson?
