Review: Captain's Surrender by Alex Beecroft

My review of Captain's Surrender by Alex Beecroft went up yesterday over at AAR. I loved this book, and immediately had to buy Beecroft's False Colors after I finished this one.

Set in 1779, Josh and Peter are sailors in the British Navy, serving aboard a ship headed for Bermuda. In addition to the danger they face from the sadistic Captain Walker -- who suspects them of being homosexual, which is punishable by death -- they also face danger from pirates and possible mutiny aboard their ship. I was so utterly engrossed in this book from the first page that every time I had to set it down I couldn't wait to get back. Click here to read my full review.

Disclosure: I purchased this book myself.

Hurray for Google Alerts :) I read your review on AAR yesterday and wanted to thank you for it, but couldn't figure out how. This is much easier!

Thank you for such a lovely review. I'm really glad you enjoyed the book, and hope you enjoy False Colors too.
