The year is 1798.
Great Britain’s war with France and Spain extends to the Caribbean, and island nations become economic pawns as they are fought over, won and surrendered. Sugar is white gold, but slaves are black gold, and the slave rebellion in Saint-Dominque shifts the balance of agricultural power to Spanish Cuba.
Captain Nicholas Fallon and his crew of Rascals are thrust into this precarious and political maelstrom by the discovery of a simple red ribbon floating on the sea. Theirs becomes a world of secret agents, fierce sea battles and daring rescues against improbable, if not impossible odds.
It will take all of Fallon’s strategic cunning and the daring seamanship of his female first mate, Beauty McFarland, to defeat not only the French and Spanish but an arch enemy who is soulless and amoral and yet known as The Holy One.
The Black Ring has a modern storyteller’s voice and critics are proclaiming it a worthy successor to the first book of the Fallon trilogy, The Bermuda Privateer.
