Reviews

"If you enjoy salty tales told by the man who knows the sea, British history, as well as words, winches and wimbrels, Devil to Pay will see you through a fine evening handily." —Sunday Telegram

"All the competence, courage, and ingenuity of a Hornblower along with a bit more polish . . . C.S. Forester would have approved of Delancey." —Library Journal

Author Biography

Cyril Northcote Parkinson pursued a distinguished academic career on both sides of the Atlantic and first became famous for "Parkinson's Law"—work expands to fill the time allotted to it. Parkinson wrote many books on British politics and economics. His first fictional effort, a "biography" of Horatio Hornblower, met with considerable acclaim and led to the Delancey series. C. Northcote Parkinson died in 1993.
