On the Lee Shore
What is being said about On the Lee Shore
Allan is a remarkably fine writer, with an ear for dialogue of all decks and classes, an eye for telling detail and a satisfying scene...none of the pretenders to the Hornblower throne...have satisfied me as much. Bravo!
Dan Pollock - the critically acclaimed US thriller writer
What, for me, elevates the author to the heights of Forester, Kent and O' Brian, is the magnificence of the descriptions of life at sea, the hazards of sailing and the really authentic-sounding dialogue
Richard Tearle - Discovering Diamonds Reviews
Philip K. Allan manages to move the reader effortlessly between the quarterdeck officers and the lower deck crew, to paint a very convincing picture of life on a ship...
James Boschert - author of the Talon series
On the Lee Shore...is filled with action and peril that keeps readers on the edge of their seats.
