His brother had been captured by Spaniards! This was the news that met young George Saint Leger as he returned to Plymouth England from a sea voyage aboard the trading ship Bonaventure in 1569. George strikes a deal with a local shipbuilder. If George can use the sleek and fast new ship, Nonsuch, for a quick pirate strike into the Spanish-owned West Indies, and rescue his brother in the bargain, the shipbuilder gets half of any loot George brings back. But this is the Queen's ship! Will George be able to dodge the English Navy as well as Spanish galleons bristling with cannon in his desperate mission? Amidst the swashbuckle of blades, and the snap of mizzen-mast sails, the heat of the Caribbean sun, and the gleam of treasure, here is a nautical adventure to rival the best sea novels of Rafael Sabatini.
