Blown Off Course: A Firebrand John Pearce Adventure, Book 7 | [David Donachie]

Blown Off Course: A Firebrand John Pearce Adventure, Book 7

Lieutenant John Pearce is in London seeking protection for his friends, the Pelicans, from a reluctant Admiralty. Sitting in the tavern where they were first press ganged, Pearce considers his future. Lacking the evidence of perjury he once had to bring Captain Ralph Barclay to justice, his prospects are not promising. Ralph Barclay’s young wife, Emily, is refusing to live under the same roof as him and she has the means to get her own way: the evidence Pearce believes was lost at sea.

Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant John Pearce is in London seeking protection for his friends, the Pelicans, from a reluctant Admiralty. Sitting in the tavern where they were first press ganged, Pearce considers his future.

Lacking the evidence of perjury he once had to bring Captain Ralph Barclay to justice, his prospects are not promising. Ralph Barclay’s young wife, Emily, is refusing to live under the same roof as him and she has the means to get her own way: the evidence Pearce believes was lost at sea.

Pearce’s companions finally arrive in London just in time to join Pearce in fetching a ship laden with contraband back from France - an illegal act but very profitable. Are Pearce and his Pelicans sailing into prosperity or danger?

    "Disappointing"
    What disappointed you about Blown Off Course?

    The story is boring. Mr. Donachie is locked in a world where he loves his own sense of humor. Problem is, it falls flat.

    "Rip Off"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is not a full novel, it is a half of a story. Published immediately after this novel Is David Donachie's "Enenies and Every Turn", Obviously a scheme by the author to achieve getting paid twice for one novel.
