Lewrie and the Hogsheads is a novella in which news that a Spanish privateer has taken an American merchant ship gives Lewrie the opportunity to escape the boredom of port and take his smaller ships hunting. He has a strong feeling that all is not what it seems and the narrative unfolds the strategy to uncover the mystery.
As a novella it’s fairly short but it is well written and gives the reader the full Lewrie experience. This is particularly useful as with 19 books in the series it can be daunting and expensive to start a new series. The ebook also includes the first two chapters of the latest full book, Hostile Shores, and having read that you will be off to purchase the full book.
If you have not yet purchased an e-reader and still want a taster of Lewrie a brief excerpt of the novella is available on the book description page.
The novella is highly recommended.
