[…] John Drake writes beautifully, and youll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick OBrian is totally justified.’ Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling authorJohn Drake trained as a biochemist to post-doctorate research level before realizing he was no good at science. His working career was in the television department of ICI until 1999 when he became a full-time writer. Johns hobby is muzzle-loading shooting, and his interests are British history and British politics (as a spectator), plus newspapers, TV news, and current affairs. He is married with a son and two grandchildren.Endeavour Press is the UKs leading independent digital publisher.
