Count Felix von Luckner inspires rollicking New Zealand young adult sea story

German sea captain, Count Felix von Luckner had a fearsome reputation during World War One when he was known as the Sea Devil and in his motorised sailing ship, Seadler (the Sea Eagle), terrorised Allied shipping around the world, sending more than a dozen ships and their cargoes to the bottom of the sea.
 In Jock Logan & the Sea Devil, he comes into contact with a 12 year old boy in an enthralling sea adventure based on fact.
When Jock, struggling to come to terms with the death of his father, killed on the battlefields of France, finds himself in the hands of one of the most hated Germans of the war, surely it will surely change his life forever.
This novel  by Brent Leslie is now in print from:
