Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Author signed front title page. Looks never read! In At the Edge of Honor, the first of a series of novels on the life and times of Peter Wake U.S.N., the former merchant marine officer arrived at the East Gulf Blockading Squadron at Key West in 1863 as a new volunteer officer commanding the tiny armed sloop Rosalie. With her he chased blockade runners on the coasts of Florida and delved into the murky world of Confederate sympathizers in Spanish Havana and the British Bahamas.

Now the year is 1864, and Wake, assisted by his indomitable Irish bosun, Sean Rork, commands a larger ship, the naval schooner St. James. Wake’s remarkable ability to make things happen continues as he searches for army deserters in the Dry Tortugas, discovers an old nemesis during a standoff with the French Navy on the coast of Mexico, starts a drunken tavern riot in Key West, and confronts incompetent Federal army officers during an invasion of upper Florida. It all adds to his growing reputation in the fleet as a man who engenders loyalty among the sailors of the lower deck and grudging respect from his superiors.

Along the way, Wake’s personal life takes a new tack when he risks reputation for love by returning to the arms of his forbidden sweetheart, the daughter of a Confederate zealot. Key West provides a unique setting for them to prove that their love is strong enough to overcome the insanity of the war. And through it all, even when surrounded by the swirling confusion of danger and political intrigue, Peter Wake maintains his dedication to balance on the point of honor.; The Honor Series; 1.23 x 9.74 x 6.32 Inches; 327 pages; Signed by Author
