(The third book in the Matthew Quinton Journals series)
A novel by

 

"Davies' depiction of Restoration England is impeccable, his characters truly live and breathe, and the plot kept me in suspense. I could not recommend it more."
Edward Chupack


"Utterly impossible to put down . . . finely shaded characters, excellent plotting, gut-clenching action, and immaculate attention to period detail. . . . Superb."
Angus Donald


"As fascinating an account of Restoration politics as it is of the Restoration Navy."
Seth Hunter


"A splendid addition to nautical adventure, and a grand story!"
Dewey Lambdin


1665. Britain's at war, but conspiracies against the King abound. As plague stalks London, Captain Quinton commands a vast man-of-war in the fight against the Dutch. Surviving action in the thick of the Battle of Lowestoft, one of the greatest sea-fights in the age of sail, he returns home only to discover an uncomfortable truth about himself and his family.
