Synopsis : As England falls under a blanket of peace with the restoration of Charles II, in distant Jamaica all is not well. Though there is peace with Spain, there is no peace 'beyond the line'. It seems that the West Indies have become the private estate of the King of Spain. But Ned Yorke, Admiral of the Brethren and leader of the Buccaneers will not kowtow to the new Governor in Jamaica who is bent on weakening the Island?s defences and destroying its currency. The Buccaneers must not remain idle. The third in a series set in the Caribbean, Dudley Pope reveals a masterful plot of subtle, seafaring lore wound around the tense excitement of adventure on the high seas.
A propos de l'auteur: Dudley Bernard Egerton Pope was born in 1925 into an ancient Cornish seafaring family. He joined the Merchant Navy at the age of sixteen and spent much of his early life at sea. He was torpedoed during the Second World War and resulting spinal injuries plagued him for the rest of his life. Toward the end of the war, Pope turned to journalism, and also researched naval history and in time became an authority on the Napoleonic era and Nelson's exploits, resulting in several well-received volumes, especially on the Battles of Copenhagen and Trafalgar. He also began writing fiction using his own experiences in the navy and his extensive historical research as a basis. In 1965, he wrote Ramage, the first of a highly successful series of novels. Another renowned series is centered on Ned Yorke, a buccaneer in the seventeenth-century Caribbean. He lived aboard boats whenever possible, and most of his adult life was spent in the Caribbean. He died in 1997 at the age of seventy-one.
