The year is 1805, and a nervous England wearily anticipates Napoleon's next move; is it invasion of the home isle itself? Such thoughts do not concern young Mr. Edward Pamprill, however; he's too busy spending his father's money and living a life of idle pleasure. The good times are cut short when his father (the lecherous Baron Pamprill) secretly arranges for his own son's kidnapping and removal to a man-of-war in the Royal Navy. It is at sea that young Mr. Pamprill receives his education, and the reader will thrill as the plucky hero battles Spanish gold ships, survives raging storms, and brings to justice an international criminal with the help of his beautiful accomplice.
The culture, language, and manners of the period are brought to life with vivid detail. Experience the rise of Napoleon and the death of Europe's old order through the eyes of one of fiction's newest and most engaging characters.
