Raised by a fisherman on the English Channel and taken under the wing of the fearsome Billy Bates, Jacob Swift was leading the country's most successful smuggling gang at fifteen, landing cargoes of brandy, tobacco and silk along the Kent coast whilst fighting battles with rival gangs and customs officers on land and sea. But when the king of smugglers gets caught up in a plot to steal a priceless treasure he makes an enemy with enough power to bring his empire to its knees. This is a story of honour, loyalty and England's troubled past. A story of treasure lost and finally found.


After decades of attacking Royal Navy ships the world’s most ruthless pirate Alfred Mudd finally dies, bringing his reign of terror to an end, but Captain Mudd’s lifetime of success leaves a deadly legacy, and a treasure haul large enough to finance a war for control of Europe.  

So begins a race for the treasure between the British and French navies, a race that will see Admiral Saunders lead a squadron of ships across the Atlantic, around the dreaded Cape Horn and through the most dangerous seas on earth on the most important mission in the Royal Navy’s history.    

1760, The coastal town of Deal is a dangerous place, ruled by bare knuckle fighter Dale Jenkins and his ruthless gang of thugs who demand money from anyone forced to live on the wrong side of the law. But when Dale dies a battle for leadership between his brother and youngest son, Ronnie begins. As the townsfolk hold their breath in anticipation of trouble, local fisherman turned smuggler, Billy Bates spots an opportunity to end the Jenkins reign of terror and gathers an army out of the clan's enemies, an army of misfits including a daring young thief called Alfred Bicks and a mysterious orphan whose past has destroyed his very soul. Risking everything Bill steps out of the shadows challenging the clan for control of the town's criminal underworld and all out war erupts in the streets.
