The King’s Chameleon
by Richard Woodman
A historical maritime thriller starring Captain Kit Faulkner: perfect for fans of Hornblower, CS Forrester and Patrick O’Brian
England, 1659. Captain Kit Faulkner’s house is prospering; his eldest son, Nathaniel, has recently returned from a profitable trip to Jamaica in the good ship Faithful, and his daughter, Hannah, has made a suitable match with a young sailor. But the resignation of the Lord Protector, Richard Cromwell, throws England into uncertainty. Will the republic flourish, or will a King return to the throne?
Kit is content to let matters take their natural course, but his younger son, Henry, is an idealist with political ambitions. It soon becomes clear that Henry is in much deeper than Kit first realised, and Henry’s actions may threaten everything that Kit holds dear . . .
