A dark tale of adventure, piracy, murder, and revenge set on a rugged Cornish island in the mid-1 700s. Told with the literary g excellence to be expected from the author of The Four Feathers, ^ the tale begins with a dangerous youth who sat in the stocks, and

a girl named Helen, and a gang of men watching a granite house ^ at the edge of the sea. NOTE: Contains some language that would be considered offensive to the modern ear. (Christine Dufour)
