BOOK TWO IN THE GALLANT SAGA

The Spanish have sent La Nuestra Señora de la Concepción, a bejeweled gold statuette, to France to seal their pact of loyalty and insure Spain's dominance on the high seas.

But the statue has vanished, and Paul Gallant receives orders: Find it! Was La Nuestra Señora captured by the British? Was she lost in a storm? Or has she fallen prey to marauding pirates?

Gallant's search leads him from the high seas to a British dungeon in Fort Louisbourg, from the arms of a beautiful Micmac squaw into a pitched battle with his greatest enemies. The fearless captain of the Écho must overcome the treacherous waters of Louisbourg and match wits with the Royal Navy in his quest to retrieve the golden virgin. He is a brave and courageous navigator, but this is his greatest challenge. Whoever finds the statue rules the seas.
