Synopsis of book»

John Pearce is going home. But he has to avoid capture by an Algerine warship, having his Pelicans pressed into a British frigate and that’s before they are at risk of being hanged for desertion once home. Then there is the problem of Emily Barclay and their son Adam. By cunning and bluff he protects his friends, but not his troubled love life. In a whirlwind of action, there are forged wills, devious trades, contrived murders and dangerous spy missions, with so much deceit that Pearce does not know who to trust. All he can hope to do is survive.

Absolutely love this series- read it all over one month continuously. Have been reading historical navel fiction for many years and many authors and this series is among the best - great plots - wonderfully well drawn characters. Highly recommend all the novels by Donachie and eagerly await the new John Pierce novel in JulyJerry Goldman
