Publisher's Summary

It is early February, 1799, a year of war.

Sailing in the Caribbean, Captain Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, is once again pursuing a chimera. A rich French prize ship he'd left at anchor at Dominica has gone missing, along with six of his sailors.

What starts as a straightforward search for it, and them, from Hispaniola to Barbados, far down the Antilles, leads Lewrie to a gruesome discovery on the Dry Tortugas and to a vile cabal of the most pitiless and depraved pirates ever to sail under the "Jolly Roger", and the suspicion that one of his trusted hands just may be the worst of them all.

Against his will - again - the usually irrepressible Lewrie is made his superiors' "cat's-paw" once more, and his covert mission this time is to go up the Mississippi in enemy-held Spanish Louisiana to the romantic but sordid port of New Orleans in search of pirates and prize, where one false step could betray Lewrie and his small party as spies. Beguilements, betrayal, and death lurk 'round every corner of the Vieux Carre, and it's up to Lewrie's quick but cynical wits to win the day for their survival, and wreak a very personal vengeance on his foes.

    "SKIP THIS ONE"
    Would you try another book from Dewey Lambdin and/or John Lee?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed this series but this one is a solid miss! 9 hours into the book before the action begins, too much awkward sex, and most of the earlier characters are missing. Even try as he may, John Lee could not save this story.

    "Fantastic!"

    I absolutely loved this book! the first Dewey Lambdin book I have ever read and I was hooked! I had to start with the first book and work up the series. I haven't been disappointed so far.

    "Captains vengeance"

    I've listened to every navel historical fiction available... I was hooked on the genre after stumbling upon Patrick OBrians Aubrey-Machurin series. The finest naval series ever written, better even than Hornblower. This series is entertaining and worth a listen, but pales in comparison to O'Brian. A good, lighthearted edition to the series. It should be noted this installment has very little sea action.
