The American ship Ophelia leaves New York bound for London with a consignment of Federal gold. Amidst the swirl of cannon smoke; lust, greed, hate, and love are woven into the fabric of history.
Skulduggery is in the wind and betrayal bubbles in the wake as they are chased by a powerful privateer. But all is not as it appears, for it will take all the wits and seamanship of Duncan, an aged Scot captain, and his first mate Havisham, for the Ophelia to survive the coming battle. Onboard, is Pieter Van de Graaf, a calculating State Department Official, and Maria, his despised and beaten wife; whose passion for a man, once awakened is powerful and thirsty. For it is also a story of stolen love and stolen moments. A storm of incredible fury, a daring escape, and above all — seamanship, navigation, and the creativity of people too proud to surrender. For mark thee well, this is a story of the sea and its salt will stain the pages you read.
