Description
The Fox and the Flag by Dan Parkinson
IN THE BESTSELLING TRADITION OF PATRICK O'BRIEN, DAN PARKINSON HAS CREATED A ROLLICKING SAGA OF MEN AT SEA, FROM THE SPLINTERING, HEAVING HULLS OF FRIGATES LOCKED IN BATTLE TO THE DESPERATE FLIGHTS OF MERCHANTMEN LADEN WITH CONTRABAND. ACTION PACKED, AUTHENTIC, THESE ARE MAGNIFICENT TALES OF HEROISM IN AN AGE WHEN MEN'S COURAGE RULED THE WAVES.

As captain of the 18-gun Fury, ex-British naval officer Patrick Dalton escorts merchant ships through treacherous Colonial war zones, where English ships search for rebels and ruthlessly confiscate cargo. Accused of treason by the Crown, he is a man without a flag, relentlessly pursued by warrant officer Felix Croney, who has vowed to bring him to justice. Now, he and this sworn enemy are about to meet in a deadly duel of nerves and wit. To save his freedom, Dalton will do whatever he must to win--even if it means taking the officer as his prisoner...and damn the consequences!
