Synopses & Reviews
The year 1807 starts out badly for Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy. Hes living at his fathers estate at Anglesgreen, recovering from a wound suffered in the South Atlantic. At last theres a bright spot. Admiralty awards him a new commission, not a frigate but a clumsy, slow two-decker, Fourth Rate 50. Are his frigate days over for good?
Lewries ordered to Gibraltar, but Foreign Office Secret Branchs spies and manipulators have use for him, again! HMS Sapphire is the wrong ship for the task, raising chaos and mayhem along the Spanish coasts, and servicing agents and informers. What hes ordered to do needs soldiers, landing craft, and a transport ship, all of which he doesnt have, and must find a way to finagle it all.
He could beg off and say that its asking too much, but . . . Alan Lewrie is not a man to admit failure and defeat, and his quest might prove the most daunting of his long naval career.
Dewey Lambdin's The King's Marauder is the 20th thrilling installment in his highly acclaimed and beloved Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure series.
