Publisher's Summary

John Pearce is going home. But he has to avoid capture by an Algerine warship, having his Pelicans pressed into a British frigate, and that's before they are at risk of being hanged for desertion once home. Then there is the problem of Emily Barclay and their son, Adam. By cunning and bluff, he protects his friends but not his troubled love life.
In a whirlwind of action, there are forged wills, devious trades, contrived murders and dangerous spy missions, with so much deceit that Pearce does not know whom to trust. All he can hope to do is survive.

Excellent Napoleonic Romp

The John Pearce books continue to entertain with the ongoing story of The Pelicans, this time with a clandestine visit to Paris. Excellent stuff and a must for any fan of the Patrick O'Brian Aubrey and Maturin books.
