Percival Keene follows namesake character, a low-born seaman, on a mission to discover and claim his true parentage and identity. Young Keene endures battles both great and small, a stint on board a pirate ship, a stormy romance, and near-execution at the hands of Napoleon himself, all told with Marryat's trademark panache. A page-turning nautical yarn with brilliant historical re-creations of life and war at sea.
