Review

'Hornblower, Aubrey and Quinton -- a pantheon of the best adventures at sea!'
CONN IGGULDEN

'Mr O'Brian would have heartily approved of the finely shaded characters, excellent plotting, gut-clenching action and immaculate attention to period naval detail that Davies supplies. Superb!'
Angus Donald, author of The Outlaw Chronicles

'J D Davies's depiction of Restoration England and the British navy is impeccable, his characters truly live and breathe, and the plot kept me in suspense . . . I could not recommend it more'
Edward Chupack, author of Silver

'Swashbuckling suspense, royal intrigue and high seas naval action . . . an excellent series'
Publishers Weekly --...

From the Back Cover

A beautifully written and masterfully told story full of wicked intrigue, gripping suspense, stirring action, deft plot twists, and incredibly rich and compelling characters destined to be a classic series of nautical adventure.
Eric Jay Dolin, author of Leviathan and Fur, Fortune, and Empire
Having sunk the first ship he commanded off the coast of Ireland, Captain Matthew Quinton is determined to complete his second mission without loss of life or honor. Rebellion is stirring in the Scottish Isles, and King Charles II needs loyal officers to sail north and face the threat. But aboard His Majesty s Ship the Jupiter, the young gentleman captain leads a resentful crew and has but few on whom he can rely. As they approach the wild coast of Scotland, Quinton begins to learn the ropes and win the respect of his fellow officers and sailors.
But he has other worries: a suspicion that the previous captain of the Jupiter was murdered, a feeling that several among his crew have something to hide, and a growing conviction that betrayal lies closer to home than he had thought.
A delightful tale.
Kirkus Reviews
As fascinating an account of Restoration politics as it is of the Restoration Navy.
Seth Hunter, author of The Winds of Folly

One of the foremost experts on the seventeenth-century British navy, J. D. DAVIES is the author of Pepys s Navy: Ships, Men and Warfare, 1649 1689, winner of the Samuel Pepys Award, and the sequel to Gentleman Captain, The Mountain of Gold.
Follow the continuing adventures of gentleman captain Matthew Quinton in The Mountain of Gold
