    The new John Pearce book is listed - A Treacherous Coast. Out in the UK in November, for some reason there is quite a delay for US readers until April 2017

    I'm about 5 books into the John Pearce series and I've decided to put them down and look for a new author/captain. This far in I don't care for Pearce's attitude of disrespect and irreverence for command and the navy while at the same time using it for his own personal agenda. I believe when I reached the point where he took his future bride on board is where I'd had enough to see what lies ahead. I may pick it back up if I've exhausted everything my library system has to offer, luckily we have a thorough catalog

    Without a doubt, John Pearce is a 'hard case' when it comes to 'attitude' and his irreverence for society and 'position within it'. But then, born of his upbringing by 'the ranter' and his treatment by a 'Pigot-esk' captain following illegal impressment, I have found entertainment in the irony of a naval career propelled forward by chance, luck (good and bad) and the conniving of others, which often plays to the advantage of Pearce.

    There's some "great' HNF out there and a lot of "very good" HNF as well. When you get to the "good" HNF, you begin to ask yourself if "haven't I read this before"? You won't find this to be the case with John Pearce and the Pelicans.

    Just finished A Treacherous Coast (audio version) and found it to be consistent with the 'John Pearce' we've grown use to (like him and his 'attitude' or not). Like all 'chronological' series, this must be read 'in order' for maximum understanding and effect.
    While not, in my mind, a 'classic' HNF series, I do find it 'entertaining' and worthy of my time and interest as I march up Artillery Hill each morning. Donachie's writing style is different, unto itself, and shows talent.
