About this title


It is the year 1756 and fears are rising that France will imminently invade the English territories of Minorca and Gibraltar. Post-Captain Daniel Winchip becomes the eyes of the English Navy-bringing status reports back to General Fowke in Gibraltar and both Admiral Byng and Vice Admiral the Lord Hawke in England. His first mission on board the new frigate Eaglet takes him to Rochefort to bring a Frenchman, spying for the English, back to England. He is confused when the spy, Gaspar Foche, is accompanied by a woman - the beautiful Madeleine Loxley, a lady beset by tragedy and despair who sets his heart aflutter. Post-Captain Winchip is sent on missions to ascertain the position of the French Navy and tests his officers and crew to the limits. At times, Eaglet faces impossible odds and when the great fleets of France and England finally come together, Eaglet is forced to risk her very existence for the sake of King and country. Through the many arduous days and nights at sea, Post-Captain Winchip realises his love for Madeleine. Are they destined to be together? Will he survive the battle to be with her once more?

About the Author:

John Mariner was born in Oxford in 1936. After a preparatory education in Oxford he was educated at Ryde School in the Isle of Wight. He later opted to Join the Royal Air Force where he served in many counties around the world until he became involved with 'In-flight Navigation Bombing Systems'. He retired from the Royal Air Force in 1972 as husband to Margaret and then joined Oxfam's team of fund raisers until 1990. He is now content to write books about England's Royal Navy and about the brave men who did so much to protect our land. All John Mariner's books are "dedicated to his elder brother, Peter, who, as a Royal Navy Bomb Clearance Diver, died at sea in tragic circumstances on 12th January 1972."
