Author Mark Keating has a new novel which is now available for purchase in the UK, The Pirate Devlin, in both Hardcover and Paperback. The book will be released in the US in July but is already available for pre-order.
As the great powers of Europe fight over the spoils of slavery, corruption and greed, the golden age of piracy is born.
Sold by his father as a child for four guineas, captain’s servant Patrick Devlin knows how cheap a man’s life can be.
But his instinct for survival is strong, and when his master’s ship is sunk by pirates, Devlin makes his choice – to trade his servile existence for a life of dangerous liberty. As he learns to adapt to his brutal new world, he watches men who would once have been his masters fall dead at his feet. Eventually, he finds himself captain of the very ship that took down the vessel of the man he once served – Captain John Coxon – who, disgraced and dissatisfied, hungers to return to the sea and take his revenge.
