Story of three Courtney brothers involved in the spice trade, piracy and torture. They end up in Africa after Dorry gets sold into Arab slavery and Tom has to go find him. Usual graphic action stuff.
Well, I reluctantly enjoyed it, although his metaphors were quite funny, with ships sails constantly billowing out like the taut belly of a 9 month pregnant woman, or alternatively the taut flesh of a young woman's breast!
