Synopses & Reviews
1794. Lieutenant John Pearce is caught between the constant feuding of a trio of admirals. Their demands put him in positions of extreme danger but, as they know, he will risk a lot to protect his friends. Pearce's chances of constructing a perjury case against Admiral Ralph Barclay seem weak, especially when Barclay is willing to use any pawn to finally silence Pearce. Setting out for Tunis to garner support for the siege of Toulon, Pearce faces a different kind of danger--the wiles of the beautiful Lady Emma Hamilton. After escaping her clutches, and returning to France, Pearce has finally got the evidence he needs to nail Barclay, as well as secure the release of the Pelicans. But the siege is coming to a climax and time is running out for Pearce and his friends... Highly charged, packed with historical detail and loaded with action, The Admirals' Game is a must-read for all nautical adventure fans. Entwining historical personages with fully-imagined characters, Donachie captures the action and the period precisely.
