Nicholas Everard Naval Thrillers
Book 1 - The Blooding of the Guns
A young sailor with the weight of the world on his shoulders, a brother in the line of fire, and the greatest naval battle of all time...
Jutland, 1916: In the icy waters of the North Sea, the Royal Navy awaits the challenge of the Kaiser's High Sea Fleet
Sub-lieutenant Nick Everard could never have imagined the terror he would face as his destroyer races to launch its torpedoes into the blazing guns of a horizon obscured by dreadnoughts.
But when the steering-gear on HMS Warspite jams, it is up to Nick, along with his brother, Hugh, to save thousands of lives.
Book 2 - Sixty Minutes for St. George
After a punishing winter patrolling the Strait of Dover aboard HMS Mackerel, Nicholas Everard finds himself leading a secret mission to capture a German trawler. Little does he know it is all in preparation for the Zeebrugge Raid.
Book 3 - Patrol to the Golden Horn
The menacing bulk of the German battlecruiser Goeben lurks in the Golden Horn of Constantinople. It is vital that she is destroyed, and the plan is to send an E-class submarine in through the Dardanelles to sink her unawares.
Book 4 - Storm Force to Narvik
British Captain Nick Everard's destroyer is crippled by Nazi gunfire in the German invasion of Norway. Nothing seems able to stop the advance across Europe and the Royal Navy is in a tight situation.
Book 5 - Last Lift from Crete
The situation is dire for British forces in the Mediterranean. Their ships, with no air cover, have to run the gauntlet of 2,000 German bombers; and can only lick their wounds under cover of darkness.
Nick Everard commands the destroyer Tuareg as it ventures well inside Stuka territory. There they are ordered to evacuate a body of troops, plus an Australian field hospital and thirty nurses, from right under the Germans' noses.
The soon-decimated flotilla has to make it round the Aegean, then out of Crete - but only a miracle can save them!
Book 6 - All the Drowning Seas
1942. As Japanese invasion fleets sweep across the Pacific, a handful of Allied ships prepare for a last-ditch battle at Surabaya in the Java Sea. Not only is the Allied force doomed to defeat: any surviving ships will be trapped, since escape routes are blocked by the enemy.
Nick Everard, commanding the cruiser Defiant, is badly wounded in the battle. His ship is heavily damaged and to make matters worse, he has a battered US destroyer under his protection. But unless Everard can find some way out of the trap, both ships and crews face destruction...
Book 7 - A Share of Honour
Sub-lieutenant Paul Everard serves in the Mediterranean aboard the submarine Ultra, helping the Allies attack Axis supply ships in a life or death struggle beneath the waves.
But Paul has other worries: his father, Nick, is somewhere in the Far East, at risk from the rapidly advancing Japanese. His brother, Jack, has become embroiled in the murky world of clandestine operations, and been sent on a high-risk mission to destroy a key German naval base.
The Everards are risking everything for the war. But what price is too high for one family to bear?
