Beschreibung

1787. Captain Edward Brazier is on a mission: recently paid off from his frigate and comfortable with prize money, he is headed to Deal to propose marriage to the young and lovely widow Betsey Langridge. He must navigate the bustle of the town's narrow streets that are busy with illicit and depraved business flowing from and around the ships at anchor.

But all does not go well; between Betsey's brother and guardian Henry Tulkington prohibiting the match, and Brazier marked out for trouble by a local smuggling gang, his plans are in disarray. And when it slowly emerges that there may have been a decades-old injustice closer to home, Brazier is caught up in more than he'd bargained for.

'Compulsively readable' Cambridge Evening News

'A rollicking, highly charged read, full of eighteenth-century atmosphere' Good Book Guide
