Cover of Jester's Fortune

Jester's Fortune

All the technical details and swashbuckling action scenes readers have come to expect from Dewey Lambdin.

Fresh from his successes along the French coast, Commander Alan Lewrie is dispatched to the Adriatic to patrol the shores of Italy and intercept any French ships trying to reinforce Napoleon's armies.

The four ship squadron the HMS Jester has joined emerge victorious from the first few skirmishes, but it soon becomes evident, even to Lewrie, that the British forces need reinforcements.

The aid they receive, however, might be the most terrifying aspect of the war yet… and a lethal mistake.

Eighth in The Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures, Jester's Fortune is perfect for fans of John Drake, Julian Stockwin and Patrick O’Brian.
