The Devil's Own Luck Book 1:The Privateersman Mysteries

1793 . . . the onset of Britain's conflict with Revolutionary France. Harry Ludlow, forced out of the Royal Navy, becomes a privateer in partnership with his younger brother James. But for the Ludlows, murder and intrigue take more of their time than hunting fat trading vessels. Harry and James find themselves aboard the Navy's 74-gun Magnanime. In command is a captain with whom Harry has crossed swords in the past. When James is found standing over the body of a dead officer, Harry's feud shifts into the background. From the dark bowels of this troubled ship of the line, where perversity hides in the shadows, secrets start to surface on all sides.

"With vivid and accurate shipboard action, storm havoc and battle scenes, Donachie has made Ludlow the most compulsively readable amateur detective since Dick Francis' latest ex-jockey." --Cambridge Evening News

"Deftly combining two genres, a salty blend of seafaring adventure and whodunit . . . period flavour robustly done, excitements watertight." --Times Literary Review
