Fletcher and the Mutineers

(The third book in the Fletcher series)
A novel by


"Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O'Brian is totally justified."
Nelson DeMille

The year is 1795 and Jacob Fletcher has reached the shores of Jamaica. Having been driven out of England by his cruel stepmother, Lady Sarah Coignwood, he has finally reached a land where he might be able to make his fortune. But this haven might not be as safe as he once thought ... The Maroon peoples are being wiped up into a frenzy by the one of the most dangerous men Fletcher has ever met, Vernon Hughes. It's seems that it will only be a matter of time before the island erupts into violence. To make matters worse, Lady Coignwood has heard that Fletcher is not dead but alive and well in Jamaica. She will stop at nothing to destroy her troublesome stepson. Will Jacob Fletcher ever be allowed to pursue a life in trade as he so wishes? Or will his past continue to cast a shadow over his future? 'Fletcher and the Mutineers' is the third in a rollicking series of memoirs that bring the 18th Century back to life in its tawdry glory as Fletcher evades the dangers of Maroons, mutineers and his stepmother. Praise for John Drake: 'Broad comedy, high drama, plenty of action, a pinch of sex ... the genre has room for this cheerily debunking outsider' Daily Mail 'Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn't get much better than this. [... ] John Drake writes beautifully, and you'll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O'Brian is totally justified.' Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author John Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realizing he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999 when he became a full-time writer. John's hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren. Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent digital publisher.
