Set sail for Africa in this thrilling sequel to Gentleman Captain. When a captured Barbary pirate tells a tale of a mountain of gold deep in Africa, gentleman Captain Matthew Quinton has his doubts. But King Charles II can't resist the chance to outstrip the Dutch with a limitless source of wealth. With the devious corsair aboard, Quinton embarks on a voyage past the edge of the map and into the African unknown. As he gets closer, and as sabotage attempts pile up, he begins to wonder if there is truth in the legend after all . . . Back in England, the king has arranged a marriage between Quinton's elder brother and a mysterious lady rumored to have murdered her previous husbands. Will Quinton be able to find the fabled mountain of gold and return home in time to protect his family? "J. D. Davies writes with surging lyricism and surprisingly witty insight about a subject that he clearly knows through and through... These are superb books and I look forward eagerly to reading more of them."--Angus Donald, author of The Outlaw Chronicles"Swashbuckling suspense, royal intrigue, and high seas naval action... [an] excellent series."--Publishers Weekly
