PARKINSON, C. Northcote. Devil To Pay. (London): John Murray, (1973). FirstUK Printing. Pp. -273,(1), of maps,(2). 8vo, forest green cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "A flurry of snow, the sound of a coach in the st reet outside and almost before he knows it Richard Delancey's naval career has taken a new turn. An injured man is carried into the inn and Delancey hears who it is. In a matter of minutes he is ducking the freezing spray in sheets of a ferry close-hauled for Cowes. His ruses during the following weeks against the smugglers of Poole attract the attention of the Guernsey privateers, who divert him to Biscay and the French coast. But he scarcely expected to find himself at the head of a band of desperadoes in the highlands of Spain - playing a dangerous hand far from the sound of the sea." - from the dj.
