It’s 1799 and Alan Lewrie is in New Orleans hunting pirates. The pirates are improbably lead by a young Creole woman and we’re treated to (or subjected to, depending on one’s taste) the romantic entanglements that are part of every Lewrie story. This is probably the least well put-together story in the series so far. The setting is interesting but the plot is less than compelling.
This book follows “Havoc’s Sword” in the Alan Lewrie series.
