BETWEEN TWO FIRES
A Novel of John Paul Jones (Vol. 2)
Author: Nicholas Nicastro

 

In the second of his John Paul Jones novels, Nicastro tells the story of America's first naval hero during the prime of his spectacular yet tragic career. Commanding his small, bitterly divided squadron deep into enemy waters, Jones must master both the opposition and himself as he joins the battle that will seal his fame.

Meanwhile, his former comrade John Severence confronts another, more ominous brand of warfare on the frontiers of colonial New York. Both men are transformed in the crucible of combat, courage, and wartime folly.


"Nicholas Nicastro gives us a nuanced, insightful and thoroughly believable portrait of an American hero few know beyond his statement 'I have not yet begun to fight.' Nicastro does what the artist can do and the historian cannot, and he does it very well, showing us our American Tragic Hero, great but flawed, a conqueror brought down by his own faults."
—James L. Nelson, the Revolution at Sea Saga

"Between Two Fires is at once a cautionary take and a great period yarn with extraordinary characters...the final chapters are filled with as many twists and turns as a tacking frigate."
Pamela Goddard, Ithaca Times
