9780749008277: Blown Off Course (The John Pearce Naval Series)

Lieutenant John Pearce is in London seeking protection for his friends, the Pelicans, from a reluctant Admiralty. Sat in the Pelican Tavern where they were first press-ganged, he wonders what future he has, lacking funds and an occupation if he leaves Navy, and without the evidence that would bring Captain Ralph Barclay to justice for perjury. Problems are mounting for Barclay as well. Emily, his young, estranged wife, is refusing to live under the same roof as him and intends to use the evidence Pearce thinks is lost to get her own way. What action will be necessary to silence those who spell trouble for Barclay? Matters are looking up for Pearce when a smiling stranger offers him employment; the very profitable but illegal task of fetching a ship laden with contraband back from France. But is that smiling stranger all that he appears to be? How much danger is Emily Barclay in and are Pearce and his Pelicans sailing into prosperity or danger?

Descrizione libro ALLISON BUSBY, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Lieutenant John Pearce is in London seeking protection for his friends, the Pelicans, from a reluctant Admiralty, unaware that they have been turfed off the ship on which he left them in safety. Sitting in the tavern where he and the Pelicans were first press ganged, Pearce considers his future. Lacking funds, an occupation if he leaves naval service, or the evidence of perjury he once had to bring to justice Captain Ralph Barclay, the brute who pressed he and his companions into the Navy, his prospects are not promising. Ralph Barclay is a man with problems of his own. His young wife, Emily, is refusing to live under the same roof as him and she has the means to get her own way: the evidence Pearce believes lost at sea. Barclay s slippery clerk, Gherson, has as much to lose as his employer and decides that Pearce must be silenced and, if need be, Emily Barclay too. After many trials, dodging press gangs and writs, Pearce s companions finally arrive in London just in time to join Pearce in his new enterprise. A smiling stranger has offered him an opportunity he can not refuse. It involves fetching a ship laden with contraband back from the French port of Gravelines, an illegal act but very profitable. But is it all as it seems? Are Pearce and his Pelicans sailing into prosperity - or danger?. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780749008277
