    There is a new historical nautical fiction series out. The story is based on the true exploits of Captain Luke Ryan, infamous swashbuckler, American patriot and Ben Franklin’s most dangerous privateer. The story is told in three books, Gather the Shadowmen, Prince of the Atlantic and Napoleon’s Gold, all available through Amazon…

    One ship abandoned by her empire, a group of rogue sailors attempting to save her.

    Set in post-war England 1946, this is the story of the square-rigger Bonnie Clyde. She was a grand vessel in her time, but now the sea-weary sailing ship awaits scuttling in the cold waters of the English Channel. A group of rogue sailors, unable to persuade the Admiralty to help save the vessel, plots to take the ship away while it’s under tow to be scuttled. A former Royal Navy officer is lured into conspiring with a Scottish sea captain, his British first mate, an Irish navigator, and a Russian master rigger.

    Together, the crew must outsmart the British Admiralty and Scotland Yard in their attempts to stop the ship as they sail through the English Channel and Irish Sea hoping to deliver the ship to her original home in Dumbarton, Scotland on the River Clyde. During the journey, they fight storms, use clever diversions, astonish its government, and makes modern-day detection nearly obsolete. A sympathetic public opinion, aided by an AP reporter and a host of unlikely co-conspirators become their allies as they struggle to save their ship.
