Dewey Lambdin is the author of over twenty Alan Lewrie novels, which begin with The King's Coat and span the years of the American Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. 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. He makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee.
"Great naval action and deep historical detail in the vein of O'Brian and Forester." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)"You could get addicted to this series. Easily." --The New York Times Book Review"The best naval adventure series since C. S. Forester." --Library Journal"Check the log, shipmate: Dewey Lambdin has left Alexander Kent and C.S. Forester hull-down in an ocean of words and is closing on Patrick O'Brian as the most prolific historical novelist to celebrate a Royal Navy mariner during the age of sail." --Washington Times"Lambdin succeeds with high-seas action, bravado, and Lewrie's characteristic antics, putting himself in good company with Julian Stockwin and Seth Hunter as worthy successors to the popular 18th- and 19th-century naval adventures of Forester, Kent, and Pope. ... Lewrie is a delightfully randy and irreverent character, the perfect man to walk the quarterdeck of a Royal Navy frigate." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"A hugely entertaining naval adventure (a la Forester and O'Brian) with a different kind of protagonist.... Not merely a worthy entry in the very popular Lewrie series but a top-of-the-line naval adventure that can be thoroughly enjoyed by readers who've never met Captain Lewrie until now." --Booklist"The brilliantly stylish American master of salty-tongued British naval tales." --Kirkus Reviews"Lewrie is a marvelous creation, resourceful and bold." --James L. Nelson, author of the Revolution at Sea Saga"Stunning naval adventure, reeking of powder and mayhem. I wish I had written this series." --Bernard Cornwell"Naval adventures in the time of wooden ships and iron men form a distinct literary genre. Nashville novelist Dewey Lambdin has mastered it." --Chapter 16"Lewrie is a delightfully randy and irreverent character, the perfect man to walk the quarterdeck of a Royal Navy frigate." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
