1787. Captain Edward Brazier is on a mission: recently paid off from his frigate and comfortably off with prize money, he is headed to Deal to propose marriage to the young and lovely widow Betsy Langridge. He must navigate the bustle of the town’s narrow streets that are busy with legal, illicit and depraved business flowing from and around the ships at dock. But all does not go well; between Betsy’s brother and guardian Henry Tulkington prohibiting the match, and Brazier marked out for trouble by a local smuggling gang, his plans are in disarray. And when it slowly emerges that there may have been a decades old injustice closer to home, Brazier is caught up in more than he’d bargained for.

What The Critics Said

‘Another deftly crafted and consistently entertaining historical novel by a master of the genre, "The Contraband Shore" by David Donachie is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to community library collections.’

    An excellent story, just as I’ve come to expect from this author. Are we to see any more of Captain Brazier? If not, then the ending…….
