Havoc’s Sword

Written by Dewey Lambdin
Review by John R. Vallely

The indefatigable Alan Lewrie sails yet again through troubled waters in Dewey Lambdin’s eleventh sea adventure. Lewrie, now a Captain in the Royal Navy of the Wars of the French Revolution, is faced with challenging the villainous Guillaume Choundas in the Caribbean. He must battle the machinations of Foreign Office agents while simultaneously fighting the French and negotiating with the upstart Americans. Lewrie may not possess Hornblower’s moral compass, but this is one naval officer with whom readers will gladly sail.
