Quartermaster

Creswell Family Trilogy

by

The year is 1905. Peter Creswell, heir to the Britannic Steamship Company, loses his first command in a collision with a tanker loaded with kerosene. There is loss of life. Unable to cope with the aftermath, Peter seeks refuge in alcohol. Meanwhile, Rodger Brandon is planning to take control of the company from Peter’s uncle and is also pursuing the favour of Peter’s attractive fiancée, Sarah Hart.

Peter eventually seeks refuge as a quartermaster on board an Atlantic liner where he meets Gwen Neilson a wealthy American heiress. The Britannic Steamship Company launch their first Atlantic Liner which becomes a burning inferno on her maiden voyage to New York, threatening the lives of over two thousand passengers and crew in mid Atlantic. The tragedy brings the main characters together during an international rescue attempt and becomes the catalyst for Peter Creswell’s redemption and retribution.

Quartermaster is his first book in the Creswell Family Trilogy.

He has also written an anthology of poetry
called 'Whispers in the Night'

If this is the standard of what is to come in the remaining books of the trilogy - we are in for a treat!

This is tightly written with good characterisation. There is a touch of mystery and a touch of romance, and some action at sea.

I look forward to reading the remainder of the trilogy.

If you enjoyed Jeffrey Archer's Clifton Chronicles, this is one for you.

Thank you to NetGalley, Troubadour Publishing, Matador for providing a digital ARC of Quartermaster by Richard Kinsella for review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
