The Wicked Trade Reviews

From the reviews of A Fine Boy for Killing: 'Jan Needle's tale is following in a great British tradition, but alters it savagely so that it is not the salt spray that remains in the memory but the steady trickling of blood. If you like your Hornblower with more than a lick of the cat, this is for you.' the times 'A painfully authentic portrayal of naval life in the 18th century. A powerful story of lost humanity . . . its violent emotions are shattering.' guardian 'Exciting drama . . . in this enthralling novel the tension builds until mutiny is inevitable and the characters are drawn into a destiny of fear, love, hatred and horrifying tragedy.' yorkshire gazette
