"Hazardous Duty," is the third volume of the Kinkaid Series and finds our intrepid captain in command of the 18-gun sloop of war, Ranger, tasked with scouting duties for the Continental Fleet. Braving not only the foul and frigid weather of northern waters, Kinkaid must contend with an inexperienced crew, a badly leaking ship, and personality clashes among senior officers; one of them being the bold and aggressive John Paul Jones, in command of the Frigate Alfred, not to mention trying to evade a strong and powerful British force that hopes to trap and destroy the fleet in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Another high seas adventure from the pen of the American nautical fiction writer, Michael Winston. Cover art by the author. "Independent Action" introduces our hero as he serves as First Lieutenant aboard the American frigate Randolph of 32 guns, tasked with orders to undertake "independent action" in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic against a mighty British convoy. Fast-paced, old-fashioned, high seas adventure at its very best. Cover art by the author. In "Uprising" Kinkaid is given command of his own ship, Swift, of sixteen guns. His mission: to assist a major of marines with a mysterious assignment that takes them to the jungle island of Dominica, inhabited by cannibalistic Caribe Indians, and to gain information of any pirate activity in the Virgin Islands that may interfere with American shipping from St. Eustatia to American shores.
