Naval officer turns privateer in this thrilling historical adventure
1783: officer and rogue Alan Lewrie becomes His Majesty’s secret agent. Fresh from war in the Americas, Lewrie finds London pure pleasure. Then, at Plymouth, he boards the trading ship Telesto to find out why merchantmen are disappearing in the East Indies.
Between the pungent shores of Calcutta and teaming Canton, Lewrie – reunited with his scoundrel father – discovers a young French captain, backed by an armada of Mindanaon pirates, on a plundering rampage. While treaties tie the navy's hands, a King's privateer is free to plunge into the fire and blood of a dirty little war on the high South China Sea.
The King’s Privateer, book four in The Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures, is perfect for fans of David McDine, Bernard Cornwell and Patrick O’Brian.
