Here is a short review of the second book by Edwin Thomas in the three book Martin Jerrold series. The Chains of Albion.
Details of book one - The Blighted Cliffs can be found here and here.
Book two - The Chains of Albion sees Captain Jerrold in command of a prison hulk filled with French prisoners of war. When on of those prisoners goes missing Jerrold's life is turned upside-down and the search for the prisoner takes him across most of southern England in a twisted web of intrigue.
The Chains of Albion was the first book in this short series that I bought, actually picked up in a local charity shop, however I bought book one from e-bay and read that first (see earlier post).
I have enjoyed reading both, with The Chains of Albion, being a sort of 'Who Dunnit', Boys Own Adventure and Period Romp all mixed into one. I would recommend both as a jolly good read.
