Shipwrecked on the small Caribbean island of Petite Silhouette after the Great War, Aussie Captain Jack McLeod builds a new life as a smuggler, schooner captain, boatbuilder and family man. But dark clouds loom on the horizon. World War II sees the Caribbean become a battleground between the Allied Forces and the marauding U-boats of Nazi Germany, and the captain and crew of the schooner Roulette become embroiled in espionage and intrigue as they use their wits, experience and local knowledge to battle a ruthless and unseen foe.

Splicing historical fact with fiction, 'Tradewinds' takes the reader on a thrilling ride through the exotic Caribbean at a time when the Outside World invades these idyllic islands, changing them forever.
