After a disastrous and dangerous encounter with a French frigate Michael Fitton, master's mate, finds himself in charge of the Courier's few survivors. Although not a stranger to danger, Fitton faces further peril as the crew are forced to land on an enemy-occupied island. There is also the added complication of the young wife of the British Envoy to Malta and her lover being among the survivors.
With a mutiny imminent will Mr Fitton be able to retain control of the Courier and ensure that she and her passengers all return safely?
Mr Fitton in Command was first published in 1995 and is one of a series of fictional novels about Michael Fitton, real-life sailor and hero.
