Sea of Grey: An Alan Lewrie Naval Adventure

Front Cover
Macmillan, 2003 - Fiction - 400 pages

Captain Alan Lewrie returns in Dewey Lambdin's tenth roaring adventure on the high seas.

This time, it's off to a failing British intervention on the ultra-rich French colony of Saint Domingue, wracked by an utterly cruel and bloodthirsty slave rebellion led by Toussaint L'Ouverture, the future father of Haitian independence. Beset and distracted though he might be, it will take all of Lewrie's pluck, daring, skill, and his usual tongue-in-cheek deviousness, to navigate all the perils in a sea of grey.

"The lively pace and white-knuckle battle scenes should make this another winner with Lambdin's fans." - Publishers Weekly

About the author (2003)

Dewey Lambdin is the author of nine previous Alan Lewrie novels and an omnibus volume, For King and Country. A member of the U.S. Naval Institute and a Friend of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, he spends his free time working and sailing on a rather tatty old sloop, Wind Dancer. He makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee, but would much prefer Margaritaville or Murrell's Inlet.
