Overview

1783: His Majesty's secret agent



Fresh from war in the Americas, young navy veteran Alan 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.



Ladies' man, officer, and rogue, Alan Lewrie is the ultimate man of adventure. In the worthy tradition of Hornblower, Aubrey, and Maturin, his exploits echo with the sounds of crowded ports and the crash of naval warfare.



Praise for the Naval Adventures of Alan Lewrie



"The best naval series since C. S. Forrester . . . Recommended."

—Library Journal



"Plenty of action . . . Fast-paced, graphically descriptive, and well plotted."

—The Virginian-Pilot & The Ledger-Star

"

Fast-moving . . . A hugely likable hero, a huge cast of sharply drawn supporting characters: there's nothing missing. Wonderful stuff."

—Kirkus Reviews

    If you liked O'Brian, you'll love Lambdin!

    Lambdin's Lewrie novels cover a similar time period as O'Brian's Aubrey novels and if you're into naval historical tales, you'll like them both but David Lambdin's are easier to read, with less period language.

    These books just get better and better. Dewey Lambdin is the greatest author that no one has ever heard of. This story had great pacing, compelling and realistic action, and the reader always learns a lot about sailing and history. Lambdin is easily on Bernard Cornwell's level. I can't wait to read The Gun Ketch.
