The Barbary Run1816: Captain Lawson, in command of the forty-four gun frigate HMS Comus, is ordered to hunt one of the most notorious pirates to operate on the North African coast, Yussaiff Ahmed, whose nefarious activities have sent insurance rates sky high. But it is his audacious seizure of an East Indiaman which rouses the British Government to demand his destruction. However, Captain Lawson's mission is complicated when he finds his admiral's wife adrift in a boat full of survivors from a pirate attack, and he discovers that she knows more than she is saying about the pirate leader.
