The Captain’s Vengeance: An Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure
by Lambdin, Dewey
It is 1799 in the Caribbean, a year of war, and Captain Alan Lewrie of England’s Royal Navy is on his way to New Orleans. A prize ship he’d taken was stolen from her anchorage off Dominica, along with valued men from the crew of his frigate, HMS "Proteus". A long, fruitless sea search from Hispaniola to Barbados finally turns up a clue, which leads to the Florida Keys and ultimately to the infamous pirate lairs of Spanish-held Louisiana and the port of New Orleans.
