The Bermuda Privateer (2017)
(Nicholas Fallon, book 1)
William Westbrook
"William Westbrook is not afraid of action, and he is not afraid of blood, history or politics. He is also prepared to tackle seamanship and geography, love and sex. The Bermuda Privateer has all of these delights in plenty, and leaves the reader calling out for more."
