King's Chameleon, Kit Faulkner Naval Adventures

The shattering finale to the Kit Faulkner naval adventures.

England, 1659. Captain Kit Faulkner’s house is prospering; his eldest son has recently returned from a profitable trip to Jamaica in the good ship Faithful, and his daughter is to be married.

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 his son’s actions may threaten everything Kit holds dear…

An absolutely gripping maritime thriller, perfect for fans of Hornblower, C. S. Forrester and Patrick O’Brian.

Richard Woodman

Richard Woodman is a prolific author of historical fiction, and was born in London in 1944. He became an indentured midshipman in cargo liners at the age of sixteen and has sailed in a variety of ships, serving from apprentice to captain. In 1978 he won the Marine Society's Harmer Award. This experience gives his naval fiction a rich authenticity, and spurred him to write over forty historical novels, as well as a series on the history of the British Merchant Navy, alongside many other non-fiction historical books.
