Overview

The Trials of Captain Devlin
Edward Devlin spent his life serving his country as the captain of a U.S. Revenue Service cutter in the freezing arctic waters of the Bering Sea. He triumphed against the elements and the scoundrels who poached seals and sold rotgut whiskey to the Eskimos in the 1890s. But the most challenging trial he faced was in a San Francisco courtroom, when he went up against the scoundrels with money, power, and influence in the nation’s capital.
Many Colors of White is the story of life in the 1890s, from the perils of the bone-chilling arctic wastes to the stunning revelations in a San Francisco maritime courtroom. It is best read by a roaring fire or under warm covers, because arctic winds blow cold whenever the book is opened.

Meet the Author

William Edward Duke lived an extraordinary life and one that made it possible for him to vividly portray his fictional accounts of the political side of events in the Pacific Northwest. Initially a journalist, he was a long-time member of the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. He was also a “political insider” serving on the staff of U.S. Senator Jacob K. Javits and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. As a result, he didn’t merely observe life in the nation’s capital, he was part of it.
After his public service, Bill served as a director of government affairs and later manager of public relations for the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO), then went on to form his own public affairs firm, W.E. Duke & Co. He ultimately retired in Los Angeles.
Bill’s passion for the Aleut people was kindled by a story his father told him about an experience he had while in the US Navy.
