Editorial Reviews


This is the fourth in the series, and as with the previousthree, the action doesn't let up, from the somewhat horrifying depiction of aBarbary pirate attack, (not suitable for the squeamish) to the events that wenow know as the Battle Of The Nile. Action, battles, the nitty-gritty of lifeat sea are all there, but Allan also has the ability to insert humour into hisnovels - I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes where Clay met Lady Emma Hamilton.
Allan is a superb writer, his nautical details and seabattles are very well done,
and readers who enjoy the more well-known Patrick O'Briannovels may well find this series to  rankalongside Captain Aubrey's adventures.

About the Author

Philip K Allan is a British author. He still lives in the UK with his wife and his two teenage daughters. He has an excellent knowledge of the 18th century navy and believes the period has unrivalled potential for a writer. On the one hand there is the strange, claustrophobic wooden world of the period's ships and on the other hand there is the boundless freedom to move those ships around the globe wherever the narrative takes them. All these possibilities are fully exploited in the Alexander Clay novels. Philip's inspiration for the series was to build on the works of novelists like C.S. Forester and in particular Patrick O'Brian. His prose is heavily influenced by O'Brian's immersive style. He too uses meticulously researched period language and authentic nautical detail to draw the reader into a different world. But the Alexander Clay books also bring something fresh to the genre, with a cast of fully formed lower deck characters with their own back histories and plot lines in addition to the officers. Think Downton Abbey on a ship, with the lower deck as the below stairs servants.
