David Poyer's cycle of modern Navy tales ranks among the finest nautical fiction of our time. With China Sea, his self-doubting protagonist Daniel V. Lenson faces for the first time the unforgiving challenge of command at sea.Ordered to relieve an alcoholic skipper, Dan finds he has inherited a damaged ship, an untrustworthy crew, and an ambiguous mission. He is to take the USS Oliver C. Gaddis, soon to become the PNS Tughril, on her final voyage to be donated to Pakistan. But in Kirachi, Dan gets new orders: take Gaddis still further east, and operate against modern pirates preying on commercial shipping in the remote, dangerous South China Sea.Pursuing an elusive and shadowy foe into an exotic, isolated world of hazardous reefs and tropical islands, Dan gradually discerns a larger purpose behind his supposed objective. Who are these "pirates?" What expansionist cunning supports them? Abandoned by the Navy, threatened by a mutinous crew, a murderous shipmate, and an approaching typhoon, Gaddis struggles to survive without crossing the shadow-line herself.Filled with suspense, battle, and unforgettable descriptions of the sea's beauty and violence, China Sea continues Dan Lenson's star-crossed career in what Booklist calls, "One of the outstanding bodies of nautical fiction during the last half-century."… (més)

Lt-Cmdr Dan Lenson finds himself in charge of the refitting of a frigate which is being sold to the Pakistanis as Operation Desert Storm gears up. In Pakistan, he finds the Pakistani sale frozen so he is captaining the frigate as it heads out to hunt pirates in the South China Sea. Increasingly, he finds himself threatened by a mutinous executive officer, a crew of naval dregs, a lack of instructions from command, no supplies, ammunition, or even oil, and only his own dedication to mission to keep things going. In the meantime, the pirates are approaching and they look in better condition than him. David Poyer brings out a wealth of lore about Navy operations as he loads the problems on his lead character until the final exciting battle. Very interesting story, part of a series I was not familiar with. ( )
