Description - The Blighted Cliffs by Edwin Thomas

Set in the early 19th century, when Britain was fighting hard to rule the waves- a wonderfully entertaining, swashbuckling adventure series, and a dashing hero, for whom life - and love - does not always turn out the way he intends it to. anuary 1806- Martin Jerrold comes to Dover in order to restore the reputation he ruined at Trafalgar, in which trapped below deck for the duration of the battle, he finally emerged - in deepest disgrace, but alive. Before he has been in Dover a day, however, he finds himself standing over a corpse at the foot of the cliffs. This might not matter, except that the body is too far from the cliffs to have fallen accidentally or even suicidally, and Jerrold is suspected of murder. His captain seems to despise him; and the magistrate, Sir Lawrence Cunningham, wants to hang him, but no one can be found to identify the body, let alone press charges. When word reaches Jerrold's long suffering uncle at the Admiralty, the choice is stark- he must either clear his name or be cut off without a guinea. omewhere in Dover's twisted streets, someone knows something, but can Jerrold find them? Nothing is as it seems, especially in Dover where smuggling is a way
