The coast of the colonial Americas was fraught with many perils, its sea-lanes a hunting ground for the bloodthirsty predators who brazenly flew the black flag. Only the most courageous or desperate or foolhardy would dare take sail in those early years. For he who ventured upon the waves would have to contend with the basest greed and savagery of cold-hearted men... and submit to the merciless cruelties of the unpredictable waters.Shortly after Thomas Marlowe's arrival in Williamsburg, Virginia, all in that newfound capital city are speaking his name. With the bounty from his years as a pirate -- a life he intends to renounce and keep forever secret -- he purchases a fine plantation from a striking young widow, and soon after kills the favorite son of one of Virginia's most powerful clans while defending her honor. But it is a daring feat of remarkable cunning that truly sets local tongues wagging: a stunning move that wins Marlowe command of Plymouth Prize, the colony's decrepit guardship.But even as the enigmatic Marlowe bravely leads the King's sailors in bloody pitched battle against the cutthroats who infest the waters off Virginia's shores, a threat from his illicit past looms on the horizon that could doom Marlowe and his plans. Jean-Pierre LeRois, captain of the Vengeance -- a brigand notorious even among other brigand for his violence and debauchery -- plots to seize the colony's wealth, forcing Marlowe to choose between losing all or facing the one man he fears. Only an explosive confrontation on the open sea can determine whether the Chesapeake will be ruled by the crown or the Brethren of the Coast.
"There are few greater pleasures than reading a book about a world that is not our own but that is concerned with a perfectly recognizable society with almost identical emotions--in this case the American Colonies of the very early 18th century and the sea off their coasts--and the pleasure is very much increased when the writer is a master both of his period and of the English language." --- Patrick O'Brian
