Product Description

Review

"Not content to outflank and outgun C. S. Forester with his vivid and accurate shipboard action, storm havoc and battle scenes, Donachie has made Ludlow the most compulsively readable amateur detective since Dick Francis' latest ex-jockey."  —Cambrige Evening News


"High adventure and detection cunningly spliced."  —Times of London Literary Review


"Skullduggery . . . rousing battles. Authenticity guaranteed: taste the salt and smell the powder. Donachie sails on without a rival in sight."  —Times Literary Review
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
An excellent story , carrying on with the two main characters written in David's earlier books. I don't understand why this author is not so widely read or freely avaiable from WH Smith etc. David, hopefully writes one book per year, I am eagerly awaiting his next puiblication
I would recommend any of his books, The Devils Own Luck, The Drying Trade, both these books I picked up as a twin set for the ridiculous price of £2.99, that started the journey off, followed by A Hanging Matter, a Scent of Betrayal and his last book, A Bag Of Bones. As an ex sailor, it brought back a lot of memories about where our great naval traditions sprung from and how everyday usage of words came into the English language from sailors.
It is also a good " detective " story leaving you guessing right up to the conclusion. Well done David, BUT PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU ARE WRITING AGAIN

All of Donachie's books are great! They are totally exiting and the main characters are rounded and charming. I always keep up all night to finish them. I have one criticism, however:What s really lacking is a map of a ship or a naval glossary because it is frustrating to have to skip over all the naval descriptions because you cannot understand them without background knowledge.

As his stories are, more a mystery than a sea story. Good character development, and good description of the period and places. An enjoyable read.
