It is the eve of the French Revolution and England awaits with trepidation the news from the Continent that will propel her into war again after six years of peace. There are new orders for Captain James Rennie and Lieutenant James Hayter from the Admiralty. They are to sail in HMS Expedient to the Mediterranean, to assist Britain’s ally Rashid Bey of Rabhet.
So, unprepared for what they will find on the dangerous Barbary Coast, Expedient and the ten gun cutter Curlew sail into treacherous waters. The odds are daunting. They must make a show of defiance against the mighty corsair fleet of Rabhet’s enemy the Dey of Tunis. Murky politics, threatened mutiny, desperate sea actions and imprisonment follow on the sweltering North African Coast, where the rules of European warfare no longer apply and the victor will take everything.About the Author:
