Summary
Indian Ocean, 1700. The Malabar coast is full of dangers: greedy tradesmen, fearless pirates and men full of vengeance. But for a Courtney, the greatest danger might just be his own family. Francis Courtney flees the comfort of his Devonshire estate when his stepfather's gambling debts leave him penniless and in grave danger. He voyages to South Africa with revenge and fortune on his mind: his uncle Tom Courtney killed his father and he plans on repaying the debt and making his fortune in the process. However, upon his arrival in Cape Town, he uncovers a truth that leaves him overwhelmed and disoriented. Christopher Courtney sets out to make his own way in the world, giving up his privileged position as the son of the Governor of Bombay
