Book 9, Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures - An Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Following the footsteps of Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey, whose ripping adventures capture thousands of new readers each year, comes the heir apparent to the mantle of Forester and O'Brian: Dewey Lambdin, and his acclaimed Alan Lewrie series.
In this latest adventure Lewrie is promoted for his quick action in the Battle of Cape St. Vincent, but before he's even had a chance to settle into his new role, a mutiny rages through the fleet, and the sudden reappearance of an old enemy has Lewrie fighting not just for his command, but for his life.
"A rip-roaring sea yarn brimming with riveting action and lusty diversions." - Booklist

Thank God it's over
The tale of the mutiny at the Nore places the reader in the middle of one of 18Th C. Britain's final social upheavals. The words of Parker and his cohorts reminds one of some of the street rhetoric heard today by the social reformers and firebrands. Trade Unionism at it's worst.
The start of the book is stuck near the end!
Look for the first 20-40 pages of the novel just after the epilogue.
For those of you familiar with the series, it will make a lot more sense if you find this piece right away.
