Devil to Pay Book 2:The Richard Delancey Novels

A lieutenant's rank belying his undistinguished naval career, Richard Delancey finds that his fluency in French lands him a secret mission, but to his chagrin, it goes awry. Casting about for fresh opporunity, Delancey becomes involved in customs collection on the Isle of Wight and in thwarting the high-stakes activities of smugglers. His success lands him in command of a private man-of-war, the 22-gun Nemesis, to embark on further adventures.

"If you enjoy salty tales told by the man who knows the sea, British history, as well as words, winches and wimbrels, Devil to Pay will see you through a fine evening handily." --Sunday Telegram

"All the competence, courage, and ingenuity of a Hornblower along with a bit more polish . . . C.S. Forester would have approved of Delancey." --Library Journal
