'David Donnithorne has retired from a life at sea to become the landloard of The Valiant Sailor inn. But the peaceful life he looked for was not to be: for he, and he alone, knew the whereabouts of a wrecked treasure ship. Though he had no desire to seek it for himself, there were those who did; and, against their will, he and his son Tony were drawn into an exciting and perilous adventure on the high seas. This rousing tale, set at the time of the Napoleonic Wars, moves from capture, storm and mutiny at sea to life in a French prisoner of war camp and a daring escape, before it sets the Donnithornes free at last from ever-threatening danger and able to return once more to the haven of The Valiant Sailor.'
