Synopsis: It wasn't quite the homecoming ex-privateer Harry Ludlow had anticipated. Having cheated death and made a handsome profit into the bargain, Harry and his brother James expected their return home to be quiet - until they become embroiled in a fierce contest between smugglers in the English Channel.
From the Publisher: An avowed lover of naval fiction with a streak of mischief, David Donachie has sailed into a breach in the nautical genre by blending seagoing adventure with the mystery and twists of a whodunit. A Scot by birth, he lives on the Channel coast of England, where he works to keep his inspirations in motion (`I have about three ideas a day by the way, all my ideas are great`) and has lately published a biographical novel about Admiral Lord Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton. He now lives in Deal with his partner, Sarah and two children, Thomas and Charlotte.
