Summary

A deal with the devil...

Jack Mallory has vowed to abandon his nefarious seafaring life to be with the woman he loves, but his final act of piracy leaves him facing the noose. His one chance at freedom: a deal with an old enemy, Ezra Archer, a wealthy Charles Town planter.

Archer has his sights set on increasing his lands and securing a seat on the Carolina Assembly - and he will destroy anyone in his way. At first, Jack’s pact with the ruthless planter seems benign - sail to Virginia to fetch Archer’s niece. Yet soon he discovers Archer’s plans for the girl are anything but honorable and could endanger his own future, a future that seems increasingly bleak when faced with Archer’s next, murderous task.

With time running out and innocent lives hanging in the balance, Jack must find a way to break his deal with the devil or forever forfeit the honest life he had hoped to reclaim for himself and his family.
