Jeremiah Martin, the son of Virginia gentry, has fled his cruel stepfather to board with a Pennsylvania frontiersman and his family. He witnesses the Lexington Massacre and soon becomes an American spy and double-agent serving not only the colonies but also Sir Francis Bolton, a Barbados businessman. Resenting Bolton's yoke, he seizes a ship belonging to Sir Francis and makes a mortal enemy of its captain, Atticus Fitzgerald. Martin witnesses the Battles of Bunker Hill and Germantown on land and commands a group of privateers travelling to Boston, Philadelphia, the Caribbean and Europe, always shadowed by a secret in his and Sir Francis's past.
