Blood-Stained Gold

Derek Smith

Jack’s childhood on a country estate is overshadowed by the ambition of his father, who hopes that both his sons will follow in his footsteps and become foresters. But Jack, not wanting to be like his brother, dreams of adventure and the sea.

When he boards The Severn Bore to work as the ship’s carpenter, he’s totally unaware that what seems like an innocent mission from the Royal Navy is hiding a deep secret: the captain frequently resorts to piracy, plundering Spanish and French cargo ships for their gold. Amid a crew of brutal men with little conscience and morality, Jack finds himself and his life changed forever.
