Overview


Dewey Lambdin's lovable but incorrigible rogue, Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, is back to cut a wide and wicked swatch through the war-torn Caribbean in an entirely new high seas adventure.

It's 1798, and Lewrie and his crew of the Proteus frigate have their work cut out for them. First, he has rashly vowed to uphold a friend's honour in a duel to the death. Second, he faces the horridly unwelcome arrival of HM Government's Foreign Office agents (out to use him as their cat's-paw in impossibly vaunting schemes against the French). And last, he must engineer the showdown with his arch foe and nemesis, the hideous ogre of the French Revolution's Terror, that clever fiend Guillaume Choundas!

We know Lewrie can fight, but can he be a diplomat, too? He must deal with the newly reborn United States Navy, that uneasy, unofficial "ally", and the stunning, life-altering surprise they bring. For good or ill, Lewrie's in the "quag" up to his neck, this time. Can sword, pistol, and broadsides avail, or will words, low cunning, and Lewrie's irrepressible wit be the key to his victory and survival, as even the seas cry "Havoc"?

Meet the Author


Dewey Lambdin is the author of ten previous Alan Lewrie novels and an omnibus volume, For King and Country. A member of the U.S. Naval Institute and a Friend of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, he spends his free time working and sailing on a rather tatty old sloop, Wind Dancer. He makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee, but would much prefer Margaritaville or Murrell's Inlet.

    Rushed the Ending

    Not that it's not an enjoyable read, but in the end it's the least satisfying of the series, and perhaps the only novel of the series (thus far) that could not stand on its own as an independent work. Especially ironic as it's also one of the longest novels of the series. The last 50 pages simply rush to conclude.

    Lewrie at his best.

    In Havoc's Sword, Lambdin adds further depth to Captain Lewrie. Lewrie shows his compassionate side for his lost 'kin', while he ruthlessly hunts down the French.The story flows very well and keeps us up to date on his problems at home. The only draw back is that we are still left to wonder who it is who is writing the letters to his wife.
