No Quarter (Book #55)
Broos Campbell is one of the authors I met at the HNS conference, and when I found out he was writing Age of Sail set in the American navy, naturally I had to give his work a try. And I enjoyed No Quarter (2006), though it got off to a bit of a slow start. Once the action took off, I couldn't put it down. It's gritty and macho and a bit disquieting in spots, and you can really tell the author used to be on the crew of the Lady Washington.
