He is also the 28th Earl of Stowey, but titles don't mean much at sea. Four years ago he turned his back on England, swearing never to go home again. Now, out of an unwonted sense of duty, he returns to British waters. At his mother's funeral, he finds his family hostile, his reputation in tatters, his boat under violent attack and his life in danger.The strange chain of events seems to involve the family's last great treas ure, a masterpiece thought to be lost for ever. As far as John knows (or cares) it is still lost, yet someone is pursuing it, someone thinkgs the Earlof Stowey knows its whereabouts and is prepared to kill for it." - from th e dj.
