Cover of The Gun Ketch

The Gun Ketch

Gunpowder, pirates and mortal danger on the High Seas.

It's 1786 and Alan Lewrie has his own ship at last, the Alacrity. Small but deadly, the Alacrity prowls the waters of the Caribbean, protecting British merchants from pirates.

A surprising turn of events makes an honest man of the young rake. But not too honest; there’s still time for a few well-planned conquests on land before taking on Calico Jack Finney, the boldest pirate in the Caribbean… But will he make it back?

Fans of John Drake, Patrick O’Brian and Pirates of the Caribbean will love The Gun Ketch, the fifth book in the epic Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures.
