Product Description

Product Description

From the opulence of his glittering palace in Madrid, devout Catholic King Phillip II of Spain has begun God's work. He plans to built an Armada, to invade his hated enemy, Protestant England. King Phillip will fund his grand enterprise using riches torn from the dank and dripping mines of his New World colonies.
Aboard the privateer, Sea Hawk, assisted by a cut-throat crew recruited from the dark, smoke-filled taverns of Plymouth harbour, Sir Richard and his servant Quinn prowl the lonely waters off the South American coastline. Their young Queen, Elizabeth, has secretly issued Richard with a Letter of Marque; a Royal licence to wage war against the Spanish, and their heavily laden treasure convoys, loaded down with gold, which sail for Spain from the New World’s Yucatan Peninsula.
Danger lurks everywhere for the English seamen, but not just from the Spanish. Forced ashore, Richard and his men find horror awaits them in the steaming jungle, close to the city of Veracruz. Unknown to Sir Richard or Quinn, someone is also planning treachery and murder below decks, aboard the Sea Hawk.
As the story unfolds, Sir Richard must face an old enemy. Will he find peace and an end to the bitter feud, which began on the blood-soaked walls of Malta?

More About the Author

Best selling author and former soldier David Black now lives and works in Hertfordshire UK. For years, he lived an extraordinary double life as a London taxi driver and reserve SAS Senior Instructor and Troop Sergeant. He has now launched a highly successful new career as a novelist.

His first book - 'PLAYING FOR ENGLAND' - takes a first-hand look at exactly what the SAS require in a man, and what standard they demand, to pass their rigorous and exhausting selection process. With a 90%+ failure rate...you'll have to see for yourself what's entailed!

David Black served with the Territorial SAS, based in Chelsea, London for 11 years while working hard as a black taxi driver in the capital. His double life was the inspiration for his new SAS Shadow Squadron series - The Great Satan #1-Dark Empire #2 and just released - The Devil's Web.

The Great Satan is based on the very real concept that Iraq did have a secret weapon of mass destruction, which disappeared during Saddam's overthrow in 2003. The weapon - a small but viable atomic bomb - goes missing in Iraq before eventually turning up in London and threatening the very existence of the city. The hero of the book, Pat Farrell is, like David Black, a part-time SAS soldier and part-time London taxi driver.

David Black said: "I left the regular army after three years because I wanted to get back to a normal life. But while I was doing The Knowledge I quickly became bored with a mundane civilian life and joined the Reserve SAS for some new action and adventure. I loved it as a part-time Special Forces soldier and part-time London taxi driver. It was an existence filled with incredible adventure and perfect inspiration for my Shadow Squadron Series."


As well, David has also written a number of historical adventures including:'EAGLES OF THE DAMNED'

'It was late autumn in the year AD 9. The long hot summer campaigning season was nearly over. Centurion Rufus and his battle-hardened century were just a tiny part of three mighty Legions, returning to the safety of their winter quarters beside the River Rhine. Like their commanding General, the veteran Centurion and his men suspected nothing...

Little did they know, but the entire province was about to explode around them.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 2nd tale of Richard & Quinn 6 July 2013
By EllieH
Format:Kindle Edition
I have now read both of the books starring Sir Richard Starkey and his man Quinn, they are both great reads, the characters are believable, passionate in their beliefs and easy to fall in to step with. This story pits them against the Spanish and Sir Richards nemesis from the first book, I'd tell you his name but that would spoil the adventure and the first book for you.
I didn't take any notice of the other reviews when I decided to read this book, 1 said he didn't like e books! Well why bother reading one if you knew you wouldn't enjoy it? The 2nd review I read was from a "proofreader" slating the grammar and the odd spelling mistake, obviously just fishing for a job!!!
This author publishes books these as soon as he has finished writing them, just to get them in the public domain, before they are proof read! He then tweaks the manuscript after he's had the book back from his proofreaders. I know this as I've read his other books and I've seen the tweaks in the 2nd publication run that is always done by David Black.
If you like adventure stories about the English versus the Spanish around the time of the armada you will enjoy this book, but first you need to read siege of faith, the first tale in the series as this will give you the insight into the main players.

Hope this helps you to decide to read these tales as try are great, now to get cracking the other books from David Black SAS or Roman legion?? Decisions decisions

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid read 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Revised review after the paperback was issued!
This is a good, steady, unexceptional read, which conveys both the steamy, oppressive Central American jungle and the notorious cruelty of the Spanish conquerors to the native Indians very well. The story chugs along at a sedate pace, without dramatic incidents, and is an enjoyable adventure. The continuing battle between the two main protagonists provides ample opportunity for further adventures.
I'm glad that the many errors in the previous volume have largely been avoided, although my heart did sink at the spelling error in the Dedication, before I'd even started the story. I'm glad that Mr Black likes semi-colons, which enables writers to avoid many short sentences; strangely, rather too many of them appear where there should be a comma. The only spelling errors I spotted were discommunicated/excommunicated, straights/straits, principle/principal, laying/lying, and peel/peal. Only one example, thank goodness, of the horrible modern misuse of the word "of", in the phrase "filled of foreboding". At one point, a sailor uses a "bullhorn" - unlikely at that time: a speaking trumpet is more likely! The usual apostrophe mistakes, of course, but overall, after the first chapter, there was nothing to disrupt the flow of the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars You need a proofreader 1 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A decent storyline, betrayed by abysmal mistakes in spelling, grammar and on one occasion, no space between two separate words. This author claims to have excellent proofreaders and yet mistakes are littered throughout the text.
But as I say, a good yarn.
