Hoare and the Matter of Treason : The final installment in Perkins' excellent series of maritime mysteries featuring Georgian naval officer Bartholomew Hoare is brimming with action and intrigue. Although incapable of speaking above a whisper because of a crushed larynx, Hoare takes advantage of his handicap in his capacity as an undercover agent for the Royal Navy. When a packet of sensitive government documents is stolen from the Admiralty, Hoare is called upon to investigate. Bidding a reluctant farewell to his new bride, he embarks on a secret mission, uncovering a treasonous plot to depose the king and smashing a nefarious ring of spies operating on behalf of Napoleon Bonaparte.
