A Fine Retribution (Alan Lewrie #23) by Dewey Lambdin

Dewey Lambdin, the reigning master of maritime fiction, continues the adventures of Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, from his days as a midshipman to captain of his own ship and, though on somewhat dubious grounds, a baronetcy in the 23rd book in the Alan Lewrie series, A Fine Retribution.

Captain Alan Lewrie and his small squadron defeat four French frigates off northern Spain, winning honor, glory, and renown. So, why is such a successful captain suddenly without a ship, or another active commission? Why do rumors swirl that jealous foes powerful patrons are blighting his career?

Months on end ashore, even in entertaining London setting up a household for himself and his retinue, getting his portrait painted, put him in serious sulks. Well, the artist is the sister of one of his midshipmen, a delightful and talented young lady of a modern outlook, but not modern enough to become Lewries lover. Dare he risk a second marriage? Then, just when things are the rosiest, at last, Admiralty calls upon him to develop and command a plan to raid French-held coasts, not with sailors and Marines from his own ship, but with a battalion of Army troops carried in a squadron of transports. Its intriguing, novel, and a way back to sea, but...can he part from the desirable Jessica Chenery? And if Lewrie does, will his foes allow him to succeed? Be certain that Alan Lewrie will prevail, scruples be damned!

A Fine Retribution

Dewey Lambdin, the reigning master of maritime fiction, continues the adventures of Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, from his days as a midshipman to captain of his own ship and, though on somewhat dubious grounds, a baronetcy in the 23rd book in the Alan Lewrie series, A Fine Retribution. Captain Alan Lewrie and his small squadron defeat four French frigates off northern Spain, winning honor, glory, and renown. So, why is such a successful captain suddenly without a ship, or another active commission? Why do rumors swirl that jealous foes' powerful patrons are blighting his career? Months on end ashore, even in entertaining London setting up a household for himself and his retinue, getting his portrait painted, put him in serious sulks. Well, the artist is the sister of one of his midshipmen, a delightful and talented young lady of a modern outlook, but not modern enough to become Lewrie's lover. Dare he risk a second marriage?

Posey, the Surveyor of Portsmouth Dockyards, japed after taking a long look at Sapphire 's damaged lower mainmast. For it seems your ship is infested with a particularly large species of wood-eating rats, hah hah hah! Posey whipped out a colourful calico handkerchief, making Lewrie fear that the man had not gotten over his gargling, sneezing fits of January, when first he'd come aboard to survey the lightning- struck mainmast, but it was only to wipe his eyes of humour tears. Knew that was coming, Lewrie thought with a wince; Damme, ye think you're bloody hilarious, don't ye? I'm waiting to hear. Posey said with a sorrowful suck at his teeth. An official authorisation to justify the expense of a new lower mainmast, and the dockyard's labour, will be necessary.

A Fine Retribution by Dewey Lambdin—the reigning master of maritime fiction—continues the adventures of Alan Lewrie, Royal Navy, from his days as a midshipman to captain of his own ship and, though on somewhat dubious grounds, a baronetcy in the 23rd book in the Alan Lewrie series. When an author is at the 23rd book in a long-running series, sometimes the weight of the full cast of characters can pull down the plotting. There are so many people to spend time with and so many careers to check in with that grafting all that onto the next step in the long career of Naval Captain Alan Lewrie makes the first half of this book almost sink under the load. Happily, the second half of the book sweeps in like a cleansing wave and keeps the reader afloat with the kind of naval action that fans of the series enjoy. The opening pages of the book provide a clue to the vast amount of detail in the story. Included are diagrams of a full-rigged ship, the points of sail of a compass, and a map of the seas surrounding the peninsula of Italy and Sicily. I spent six weeks aboard the U.
