NATIONAL BESTSELLER 


Meet James Annesley, son of 18th Century Ireland. Though you may have never heard his name before, his story has already touched you in profound ways. Now, for the first time, novelist David Marlett brings that incredible story to life. 


Stretching from the dirty streets of Ireland to the endless possibilities of Colonial America, from drama on the high seas with the Royal Navy to a life-and-death race across England and up the Scottish Highlands, from the prospect of a hangman’s noose to a fate decided in the halls of justice, FORTUNATE SON is a powerful, relentless epic. Here nobility, duels, love, courage, revenge, honor, and treachery among family, friends and ancient enemies abound. And at its center is the most momentous trial in Irish history – the trial of Annesley v. Anglesea from which our modern “attorney/client privilege” was forged, and our concept of a “jury of ones peers” was put to the test. 


Carefully researched, vividly evoked, and lovingly brought to the page, FORTUNATE SON is an unforgettable work of fiction based on fact, one that will resonate deep within you long after you finish it.


“David Marlett sets a wonderful historical novel against beautiful descriptions of Ireland in telling the story of a disputed earldom. FORTUNATE SON offers rich history, well developed characters, and a unique conclusion.” 

– Glen Cuchine, Christian Science Monitor 


“An epic and thrilling tale of adventure and drama. Beautifully written and painstakingly researched, it’s a book for fans of action and history alike.” 

– Ethan Cross, International Bestselling Author of THE PROPHET and BLIND JUSTICE
