About this title

Synopsis:

Harry Ludlow, forced out of the Royal Navy, becomes a privateer in partnership with his younger brother James. But for the Ludlows, murder and intrigue take more of their time than hunting fat trading vessels. Harry and James find themselves aboard the Navy's 74-gun Magnanime. In command is a captain with whom Harry has crossed swords in the past. When James is found standing over the body of a dead officer, Harry's feud shifts into the background.

From the Publisher:

An avowed lover of naval fiction with a streak of mischief, David Donachie has sailed into a breach in the nautical genre by blending seagoing adventure with the mystery and twists of a whodunnit. A Scot by birth, he lives on the Channel coast of England, where he works to keep his inspirations in motion ("I have about three ideas a day) by the way, all my ideas are great") and has lately published a biographical novel about Admiral Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton. He now lives in Deal with hi s partner, Sarah and two children, Thomas and Charlotte.
