A swashbuckling thriller, part one of THE HIGH SEAS ADVENTURES, set on the oceans of the eighteenth century -- drama, horror, adventure! It is 1799. John Spencer is fourteen when his father's ship, the ill-fated Isle of Skye, is shipwrecked on the coast of Cornwall as she makes for her home port. John survives the disaster, but soon learns to his horror that the villagers are not rescuers but wreckers -- pirates who lure ships ashore in order to plunder their cargo! When John discovers that his father is alive but being held prisoner, he must try and rescue him -- without knowing who can be trusted to help.
