A Nathaniel Morgan Naval Adventure.
In the tradition of C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Alexander Kent's Richard Bolitho, an American naval officer steps forward, throwing his skill and his ship into the fight for American independence against the mightiest military power in the world.
Nathaniel Morgan, commanding the Privateer, Hawke is racing against time to bring French supplied arms to desperate American forces while a powerful English fleet marshals for assault. But Morgan must battle more than British frigates. A network of English spies and sympathizers are conspiring to destroy Hawke and deny American defenders the aid needed to repel the coming attack.
Morgan must navigate the dangerous waters of politics, espionage, romance, and cannonade to keep the British from gaining a foothold in the southern Colonies.
