9780099498681: Mr Midshipman Fury

The year is 1792 — the start of the French Revolutionary Wars, and a shadow hangs over John Thomas Fury on his first voyage as a midshipman aboard the 32-gun frigate Amazon. His fellow sailors already see Fury as a pariah due to the fact that ten years earlier, his father, a brig commander, became mentally unbalanced and violent, and his ship’s crew mutinied and went over to the French. Now, as Amazon heads southwards on her voyage to India, Fury is involved in a dreadful shipboard accident and finds himself working doubly hard to prove that he isn’t cursed like his father.

Redemption arrives when Amazon reaches Bombay, only to discover that ships of the East India Company have disappeared. Somewhere in the Indian Ocean a very aggressive privateer is at work and Amazon is dispatched to find and destroy her. But Amazon finds herself in a fight for her life against a much stronger foe, resulting in many officers’ deaths. Fury, in his first ever combat, finds himself in charge of the gun-deck.

In such crucibles of fire are the officers in His Majesty’s Service forged. Showing exceptional courage and self-possession under fire, Fury forever banishes the shadows of the past and his naval career begins in glory, as he become a leader of men.

G.S. Beard has written his first novel in Mr Midshipman Fury.
