In a blind rage, King James, ex-slave and now Marlowe's comrade in arms, slaughters the crew of a slave ship and makes himself the most wanted man in Virginia. The governor gives Marlowe a choice: Hunt James down and bring him back to hang or lose everything Marlowe has built for himself and his wife, Elizabeth.

Marlowe sets out in pursuit of the ex-slave turned pirate, struggling to maintain control over his crew -- rough privateers who care only for plunder -- and following James's trail of destruction. But Marlowe is not James's only threat, as factions aboard James's own ship vie for control and betrayal stalks him to the shores of Africa.

About the Author:

James L. Nelson has served as a seaman, rigger, boatswain, and officer on a number of sailing vessels. He is the author of By Force of Arms, The Maddest Idea, The Continental Risque, Lords of the Ocean, and All the Brave Fellows -- the five books of his Revolution at Sea Saga. -- as well as The Guardship: Book One of the Brethren of the Coast. He lives with his wife and children in Harpswell, Maine.

From AudioFile:

Thomas Marlowe, former pirate turned respected plantation owner, must capture his former slave, King James, who has killed a slave trading captain (blackbirder), released his captives, and sailed back to Africa. As the two tack east, Marlowe's wife, Elizabeth, must fight for the survival of their freed blacks against their enemy, Dunmore, who insists all blacks be slaves. Adventures on the high seas are interspersed with those on dry land with never a dull moment. Wale creates interesting accents for 1600s Virginians and carefully enunciated African accents. Evenly paced plots flow with the steady cadence of Wale's narration and his command of technical sailing terms. The action doesn't stop and neither do the sailing winds as Nelson brings the by-gone days of pirates and privateers to life.
