The Admirals\' Game

    By

    It was 1794. Lieutenant John Pearce, recently returned from the Atlantic, is caught between the constant feuding of two senior admirals. One puts him in a position of maximum danger while another asks him to undertake a hazardous commission, one he must undertake in order to protect his friends, the Pelicans. They are his Achilles heel and those in power know it. Meanwhile, Pearce is also trying to construct a perjury case against Captain Ralph Barclay, while nephew Toby Burns has become a reluctant pawn in the game, the objective of which is to finally silence the man who could bring about Barclay's ruin: John Pearce. Highly charged, packed with historical detail and loaded with action - "The Admirals' Game" is a must-read for all nautical adventure fans.
