Looking for swashbuckling adventure and romance on the high seas? Look no more; "The Pirate King" is based on actual historical events.

The author's debut novel blends history, action during the Napoleonic years, and piracy into a story that takes place during the dawn of a new era, and the fate of the post-Napoleonic world hinging on the outcome.

After betraying Thomas Parsons to the occupying British, Frenchman Michel LeFevers learns of a considerable tax payment being shipped from Calcutta to London. Always an opportunist, LeFevers sells the information to a Madagascar pirate king. But in doing so, LeFevers sets off a chain reaction of events that finds all the characters entangled in an epic sea adventure. It is left to Thomas to save the day. Then, with assistance from his new friends, he must rescue his wife, who is being held by Mediterranean Barbary Pirates.
