The fourteenth tale in Dewey Lambdin’s classic naval adventure series

Spring of 1800, and Captain Alan Lewrie, fresh from victory in the South Atlantic, is reckoned a hero on a par with Nelson in all the papers. Back in England, he’s fitting out his new frigate, HMS Savage, the fruits of that victory, the largest and best-armed frigate he’s ever commanded. But you can’t leave Lewrie ashore too long without trouble arising.

A Jamaica court has tried him in absentia and sentenced him to hang for the theft of a dozen Black slaves to man his old ship, HMS Proteus. A crime, or was it liberation, as his London barrister argues? The vengeful slaveowner, Hugh Beauman, has come to London to seek Lewrie’s end . . . with or without the majesty of the Law!

Then there’s the matter of those anonymous letters sent to his wife, Caroline, portraying him as a faithless rakehell and serving up the most florid lies . . . along with some unfortunately florid truths. Lewrie appeals to the “retired” Foreign Office spy, Zachariah Twigg, to “smoak out” the hand that guides the poison pen, even while wondering why Twigg seems so eager to help his legal case, of a sudden. Is the devious old devil ready to sacrifice him for some motive of his own?

A fortunate legal ruling, which only delays the matter of Lewrie’s utter ruin, leaves him free to take Savage to sea upon the King’s business, to join the close blockade of the Gironde River in Sou’west France, and plug the threat of enemy warships, privateers, and neutrals smuggling goods in and out of Bordeaux. It could be a dull and plodding dreariness, but . . . a bored Captain Alan Lewrie, safe in his post for the moment, can be a dangerous fellow to his country’s foes. If only to relieve the tedium!

Lambdin does it again. I have to say this is an extremely enjoyable series. I recommend them all. This is another clever installment that continues to move the story along on several levels. The linear evolution of the story advances, past loose ends are tied up and the stage is set for future action. Lewrie matures as a leader and a human as well. When combined with outstanding story telling, great descriptive color in time and place along with multidimensional characters this book comes alive and reminds me once more why Dewey Lambdin is one of my favorite authors in this genre. Not only is this book worth your time, it's worth your money. As I've said on a number of other Lambdin reviews, inexpensive entertainment that creates a rich experience. Okay, I never said it that way before but that's the gist of other recommendations.

I love this book; I have read and enjoyed all of the books in this series, and will, with dedication and joy, continue to read further books in the series. The writing is engaging, and the depth of historical research is highly admirable.

The Kindle version is riddled and rotten and absolutely reeking with scanning errors! The publishers and the author ought to be damned ashamed of themselves for allowing such a messy scan to be sold. Question marks turn into curly-braces "}" and exclamation points turn into right-parentheses ")". Words are mangled: rig turns to fig and so on. Italicized passages remain italicized for words and words before or after the typographic enhancement is called for. Quote marks come away from the words they are associated with and often attach themselves to other words nearby; in many cases they vanish entirely.

The book, per se, is a joy and a delight, and I am not at all reluctant to give it the five stars it deserves. The people who prepared the manuscript for Kindle publication need to be bent over a cannon and given forty stout lashes with the end of a rope. Shabby, sir! Shabby!

Tried in absentia in Jamaica for stealing slaves, a hanging offense, Captain Alan Lewrie's case finally gets to court in England... and then is adjourned while the judge considers what to do about it. So Lewrie is allowed back to the HMS Savage until the court convenes again, with the death sentence still hanging (so to speak) over him. Most of the crew from the old HMS Proteus has come along with Lewrie, although he gets a new First. And they are all headed to what may be some rather boring patrol work off the coast of France... until Lewrie gets some ideas of how to make things a bit more exciting, anyway.

This is the 14th book in the series. If you're starting new, it's probably best to begin at the beginning with KING'S COAT. If you've read the 13 previous and enjoyed them, you might as well continue. I love this series. Great characters, humor to make things fun even amidst blood and deprivation and themes of slavery and litigation and politics and such. The historical details seem solid to me and love of the life at sea and battles comes across strongly. I can't wait for the next book (which is always a good enough recommendation for a book, I think).

Love the series and Lambdin is a terrific, hugely enjoyable writer. However, these later novels, enjoyable as I find them, rely on spending a great deal of the book rehashing previous adventures. A character from a previous novel will pop up to cause our hero some difficulties which are resolved when the said person gets killed in combat. I confess to a good deal of page flipping. Once Lewrie weighes anchor and sets sail, so does the book.

Another engrossing, fine piece of work by Mr. Lambdin. If you are interested in the Royal Navy during the age of sail, his books have everything: life on a ship, realistic battle descriptions, plot, and history. They are all real page turners. Treat yourself by diving into this series.

Another fantastic tale of Alan Lawrie in an equally awesome series. Great fun for fans of C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brien.
The only downside to this book is the TERRIBLE punctuation and spelling, obviously the fault of whoever prepared this book for kindle, not the author.
Sidenote for the author: Pogey Bait means candy...

I love this series. I have been listening to them on Audible and recommend it highly. This novel has not yet been recorded as of Feb 2017. I agree the editors or copy people need to go back through and correct the misprints, they are a little distracting. Having said that, this like the other books in the series is a great story with giant, flavorful dose of seamanship and history.
The possible down side would have been had I not read the prior books with all of Alan's adventures. The first third of this book was about what he did before and how actions will cause him to go before the legals system back then with possible death sentence. Then it crank up and dorve into he sea adventures and battles with the French.
