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?

The series started off well betrayal intrigue action and adventure but after book 5 i started to realise, the author is gonna spin this yarn out and now after reading up to book 8 in the series we still have no real resolve of any of the core issues i feel cheated and i wont be reading further titles in this series or by this author
