The trap is laid. Now, Nick Everard must wait for the U-boats to arrive... Autumn 1942. Sir Nicholas Everard, Captain of the HMS Harbinger, has a convoy to escort: big and slow, with just one destroyer, two corvettes and a few trawlers to protect it. This will not be an easy mission. Meanwhile, U-boat pack commander Max Looff can hardly believe his luck. His nerve is going and he knows it: but now he has a one-in-a-million chance to annihilate an entire convoy... Little does Looff know, however, that Everard and his ships are bait: designed to distract the Germans from the real ‘Torch’ invasion forces. The game is on. For readers of Alexander Kent, Julian Stockwin and C S Forester, this is a thrilling tale of gallantry and determination in the face of enormous danger.

The next thrilling instalment of the Nicholas Everard thrillers 1942. As a 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... All the Drowning Seas presents compelling action at sea, and establishes Alexander Fullerton as one of the premier novelists of naval warfare.

The extraordinary, breathless final volume in the Nicholas Everard Naval Thrillers Six midget submarines are about to be towed underwater from Scotland to Norway. Their targets: the giant German warships Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Lutzow. The odds seem stacked against the smaller craft. But if they can survive the nightmarish 2,000-mile tow, Commander Paul Everard will have a chance to gatecrash the fjords and cripple the ship Churchill calls ‘the Beast’. Whether or not he succeeds, the chances of getting out alive are slim. If he fails, his father Nick Everard, escort commander for Arctic convoy PQ19, is in trouble: none of his ships can stand up to Tirpitz’s broadsides. As The Gatecrashers draws to its thunderous climax, father and son face their final and most searching test... Based on the thrilling true story of Operation Source, The Gatecrashers is the blistering culmination of the bestselling Nicholas Everard Naval Thrillers.

A covert submarine raid where everything is at risk The final days of the First World War, and the menacing bulk of the German battlecruiser Goeben lurks in the Golden Horn at Constantinople. It is vital that she is destroyed, or at least immobilised, and the favoured method is to send an E-class submarine in through the Dardanelles to the sea of Marmara. However, it is two years since an Allied submarine has passed through the Dardanelles successfully – the narrow straits are littered with minefields and nets, and are continually patrolled by gunboats. To send a submarine through now seems suicidal, but the alternative of sparing the Goeben is unthinkable. Aided by a Marine explosives expert and a taciturn intelligence specialist, Nick Everard is on board and in control, ready to run the gauntlet in his most dangerous mission yet...
