Publisher's Summary

It is 1796 and a diminutive, Corsican-born French general has inherited a ragtag army and turned it into an unstoppable fighting force. Within months, Napoleon's storm rolls across Italy and strikes a lethal blow against the Austrian empire.
But while the soil of Piedmont and Tuscany runs with blood, another battle takes shape on the mysterious Adriatic Sea. Alan Lewrie and his 18-gun sloop, HMS Jester, part of a squadron of four British warships, sail into the thick of it. But with England's alies failing, Napoleon busy rearranging the world map, and their squadron streched dangerously thin along the Croation coast, the British squadron commander strikes a devils bargain: enlisting the aid of Serbian pirates.

Jester is a great name for Alan's ship

What made the experience of listening to Jester's Fortune the most enjoyable?

Well, the cast of characters work well together and Allen has got to keep his pants on

What other book might you compare Jester's Fortune to and why?

I read the #5 book and will read #6 next not one this entertaining

What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr John Lee is the best he adds so much to the characters it brings them to life

Who was the most memorable character of Jester's Fortune and why?

Allen of course

Any additional comments?

Look forward to reading them all
