Gentleman CaptainBook - 2012
From Library Staff
Having sunk the first man-of-war under his command within weeks, Matthew Quinton is determined to complete his second mission without loss of life or honor. His suspicion grows that the previous captain of the "Jupiter" was murdered and many among his crew have something to hide.
With the English Civil War still in memory, King Charles II is hard-pressed to find loyal men to command ships and put down rebellions. Young Matthew Quinton is loyal but inexperienced, and the seasoned crew seem to be keeping secrets from their new captain.
