eam of sailing with Benjamin Hornigold, Blackbeard, and other pirates of the Caribbean in 1717. Shortly after recovery, the tables are turned when his ship, en route to Jamaica for his wedding, is captured, in a very similar situation, by a modern foe in the same theater of operations – the Bahamas. Separated from his fiancée, Marion Stillwater, he must find a way to climb back from his rags to rescue her from an enemy Caribbean island and impede the duplicitous plans of the local governor – without the help of the British Navy. With the assistance of Jamaican Rum magnate Chester Stillwater and Neville’s friend, Captain Joseph Dagleishe, an escape is almost accomplished when bombardment from shore causes serious injury to Marion. Are the doctoring skills learned by Neville during his dream days with the pirates enough to save her life? – to save a limb? – all while using crude tools and the medicine of 1806, and at sea? Are Neville’s dreams of spending the rest of his life with a beautiful bride shattered – for the second time? Georges Carrack pens the detail of sailing square-rigged ships into battle while striving to retain reasonable historical accuracy – all enhanced by description from the author’s personal experience at sea. His style and stories should appeal to followers of Patrick O-Brian's Aubrey-Maturin Series or C. S. Forester's “Horatio Hornblower”. In this captivating tale, he uses a disease-induced delirium to set Burton, now a British Navy Captain, into a very different era, as well as bring him back to the reality of continued war between England and Napoleonic France.
