King's Captain: An Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure

Etukansi
Macmillan, 19.9.2002 - 368 sivua

Following the footsteps of Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey, whose ripping adventures capture thousands of new readers each year, comes the heir apparent to the mantle of Forester and O'Brian: Dewey Lambdin, and his acclaimed Alan Lewrie series.

In this latest adventure Lewrie is promoted for his quick action in the Battle of Cape St. Vincent, but before he's even had a chance to settle into his new role, a mutiny rages through the fleet, and the sudden reappearance of an old enemy has Lewrie fighting not just for his command, but for his life.

"A rip-roaring sea yarn brimming with riveting action and lusty diversions." - Booklist
