And ‘craven’ Raven, as his uncle calls him, will have to prove he is not a hopeless coward.Very soon, Charlie will need The Devils Luck to make it back to shore alive.The Devils Luck is a thrilling naval adventure that will appeal to fans of Bernard Cornwell and Alexander Kent.Jan Needle has had more than forty books published, including the best-selling Death Order.Praise for Jan Needle:Brilliant.

I found myself being drawn back into that twilight world again, despite myself. I was grossly entertained and thrilled... [Jan Needle] is a rare talent. Jimmy BoyleA thundering great novel. Whats really amazing is how much he seems to know about so many different things...what more could you want from a thriller? A cracking good read. Tony Parker, New Statesman & SocietySo topical...[Needle] develops a complex, ingenious plot at breakneck speed and has a sharp underdogs eye.

John McVicar, Time OutCompelling, vivid, racy...describes with unnerving prescience just what is going on...it will appeal equally to conspiracy and cock-up theorists. GuardianRecalls the golden age of British investigative reporting: hard-hitting, crusading, alarming prescience. The Times
