Publisher's Summary

After yellow fever decimated the crew of Alan Lewrie's HMS Proteus, it had seemed like a good idea to abscond with a dozen slaves from a Jamaican plantation to help man his frigate. But two years later, Lewrie is now suspected of the deed. Slave-stealing is a hanging offense, and suddenly his neck is at risk of a fatal stretching. Once Lewrie has escaped, the master Foreign Office spy, Zachariah Twigg, arranges for a long voyage even further out of the law's reach, to Cape Town and India, as escort to an East India Company convoy. At the Cape of Good Hope a British circus and theatrical troupe also joins the party, teeming with tempting female acrobats, nubile bareback riders, and alluring "actresses" like the seductive but deadly archer Eudoxia Durschenko. It will take all Lewrie's shrewd guile, wit, and steely self-control to worm his way out of trouble, and keep his breeches chastely buttoned to avoid even more troubles...or will he?

What the Critics Say

"Lambdin's novel is rich in 18th century nautical detail that does not overwhelm. He captures the linguistic diversity of his well-defined characters." (Historical Novel Society)

    Story
    "Still good, but..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of A King's Trade to be better than the print version?

    I have book though I have yet not read the print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Allan Lewrie is still my favorite character, because I saw him come to age in the series and enjoy seeing him prosper.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John Lee is one of my favorite readers. I look for audio books that he is reading.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good, but I had less of the tantalizing suspense for his survival and future than I have had in the past.
