It's 1794. Stuck in Palermo harbour, the headstrong Lieutenant John Pearce and his trusty Pelicans must repair the battle-damaged HMS Larcher with only meagre funds to do so. Sailing into danger, they encounter enemies. Pearce has no option but to run until, trapped in an Italian bay, he is forced to abandon his ship. Pearce must face a court-martial for his actions, but his troubles are only just beginning.
A deadly plan is contrived to send the unwitting Pelicans into mortal danger against a bloodthirsty, piratical Turk called Mehmet Pasha: The aim is to force them into a disastrous fight they cannot win. Only luck and Pearce’s fiery thirst for battle can save them now....

What comes next
I like the way a lower rank can sometimes out do their seniors
Life at sea, which must have been pretty tough for the ratings.
No particular scene, I had trouble turning the book off, like I do with the other titles in the series.
A fight for love and revenge
When is the next book arriving, or is it already out? It should be book 12 or maybe another title.
Was it worth waiting for?
