Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A gifted storyteller and orchestrator of suspense.”
—Philadelphia Inquirer

“Bernard Cornwell is to the yachting adventure novel what ex-jockey Dick Francis is to the racetrack thriller.”
—Orlando Sentinel

The New York Times bestselling author of The Fort, the Saxon Tales, and the immensely popular Richard Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell has been called, “perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today” (Washington Post). He demonstrates another side of his extraordinary storytelling talents with Scoundrel, a contemporary tale of excitement and danger on high and treacherous seas. A gripping tale of an outlaw yacht captain who decides to cross the Irish Republican Army for a $5 million payday only to find himself pursued by intelligence agents, terrorists, and killers across perilous open waters, Scoundrel is a masterful thriller in the Tom Clancy vein—a masterwork of suspense from one of todays most versatile and accomplished popular novelists.

Synopsis:

Bostonian Paul Shanahan is many things: part-time marine surveyor, smuggler, gunrunner, suspected CIA agent . . . and a full-time scoundrel with ties to nothing and no one except an ex-lover who died years before in a hail of bullets. Now hes agreed to transport $5 million in gold across the ocean by sailboat, money earmarked by the Irish Republican Army for the purchase of fifty-three Stinger missiles. Shanahans instincts are telling him theres more to this deal below the surface and that hes not meant to survive after delivery. But if he can elude British Intelligence, several terrorist organizations, and their most efficient killers—and with only his life left to lose—$5 million might just be enough to get a desperate rogue out of the game for good.
