Praise for J. D. Davies and the Matthew Quentin novels: A delightful tale. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Gentleman Captain Swashbuckling suspense, royal intrigue, and high seas naval action . . . an excellent series. -- Publishers Weekly on The Mountain of Gold Utterly impossible to put down . . . finely shaded characters, excellent plotting, gut-clenching action, and immaculate attention to period detail. . . . Superb. --Angus Donald, author of The Outlaw Chronicles A splendid addition to nautical adventure, and a grand story! --Dewey Lambdin, author of The Baltic Gambit, on Gentleman Captain Davies' depiction of Restoration England is impeccable, his characters truly live and breathe, and the plot kept me in suspense. I could not recommend it more. --Edward Chupack, author of Silver As fascinating an account of Restoration politics as it is of the Restoration Navy. --Seth Hunter, author of the Nathan Peake novels1665. Britain's at war, but conspiracies against the King abound. As plague stalks London, Captain Quinton commands a vast man-of-war in the fight against the Dutch.
