What did you like best about Enemies at Every Turn? What did you like least?
Best: Finally! Finally, there was some sort of a continuation of the story! I thought Mr Donachie had fallen asleep.Least: It felt as if the story was written because it had to be. It seemed shallow, dragging and it could have starred as well or better as just a chapter in a book. The whole book sort of slogged along, and as far as a conclusion... It just seemed to die in mid-plot.
I did get the next book just to see where it was leading and it was pretty much the same. I've gone back to re-reading O'Brian & Lambdin; I get more pleasure out of those old stories. It may be time to wrap it up and move on to something else. Or rest on one's laurels.
Would you be willing to try another book from David Donachie? Why or why not?
I'll wait until I read some reviews.
What three words best describe Michael Tudor Barnes’s voice?
Good. Animated. honest.
Could you see Enemies at Every Turn being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?

A rebellion inside a rebellion
This is book eight of the John Pearce series. In the last book Pearce was caught up in smugglers’ ring and smugglers are after him in this book. In this book Pearce is given a command by Pitt and sets off on a mission to contact the leaders of the rebellion in the Vendee. The situation is complicated by the discovery of his ex-mistress among the rebels. The rebellion is a disaster and Pierce must retreat, ex-mistress in tow and the smugglers still chasing him. The ending leaves the reader hanging until the next book comes out.
I do not like it when they change the narrator in the middle of a series. Peter Wickham was doing a great job narrating the series. Then they substituted Michael Tabor Barnes as the narrator. It is unfair to the new narrated as no matter how great they maybe they are not the original voice that the reader is use to.
