Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

King James, a former slave and now Thomas Marlowe's comrade in arms, takes over a renegade slave ship and kills the crew in a moment of rage. Blaming Marlowe for this uprising, the governor of Virginia sends him to hunt down James. In the slave port of Whydah, James and Marlowe must face a common threat and their own final showdown. Maps.
