Hoare and the Headless Captains: A Maritime Mystery Featuring Captain Bartholomew Hoare

Hoare and the Headless Captains: A Maritime Mystery Featuring Captain Bartholomew Hoare Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second of a series of historical mysteries featuring Batholomeu Hoare, officer in His Majesty's Royal Navy during the reign of George III. Hoare is charged with finding the murderer of his Majesty's captains and uncovers an egregious conspiracy of theft and violence. Resurrected once again is the colorful Miss Jane Austen, as well as other delightful characters also featured in the first novel in this promising new series.

Synopsis:

In Perkins' second maritime mystery, Bartholomew Hoare, the Royal Navy's investigator, again comes up against Bonaparte's secret service, and confronts certain deluded high-placed Englishmen in its employ. Hoare, still seeking the hand of Jane Austen's friend Eleanor Graves, commands the oddest collection of unseaworthy sailors in the Royal Navy to help him find the killers of two murdered Naval officers.
