The King's Privateer
1783: "Assigned to a ship disguised as a merchant vessel to check on French activities among local pirates, Alan finds plenty of action in Canton, Calcutta, and the islands of the South China Sea.

Lambdin provides a well-rounded plot and fascinating, well-researched evocations of late 18th-century Oriental trade cities."—Library Journal See Details
