"The Captain" is a very enjoyable story. It's full of adventure, especially at the beginning. There's also the murder mystery to solve. Strong and level-headed, Jacinda was a refreshing heroine. I really cared about the characters.
Captain Andrew Morrow returns from India with a fortune, but has no intention of following through on his prior arranged marriage with Jacinda Blanchett. When he discovers she is missing under mysterious circumstances, he determines to track her down.
