.Northbound on a coastal trader . . .



Sly makes a friend:
Pedro, a run-away Duke.

He outwits a foe:
Feo, a churlish fellow-ship’s-cat.

He’d expected an enjoyable reenactment
of his carefree sea-faring youth.

Instead, it’s a struggle to survive.


..    A capture by pirates

..    A cunning deception

..    A daunting escape


Pedro is being smuggled north,
beyond the reach of a murderous uncle.

A hefty reward is offered
for the boy’s removal from the Ducal line of succession.

The captain of an English privateer put into the port of San Sebastian,
overhearing talk, puts two and two together.

The chase is on


This is a work-in-progress.
