KIRKUS REVIEW

Period -- 1527; place -- Genoa and the fleet; characters including the commander, Andrea Doria and his nephews, Prospero Adorno, a naval condittiero, the Barbary pirate, Dragut-Reis, and the mysterious and lovely lady who rescued Adorno when he fled the fleet, and nursed him through the Plague. A story of high adventure, of shifting loyalties, of a long road to revenge, of conflict between city states, and of love the victor. Good cloak and sword romance, somewhat overlarded with the minutiae of a confusing historical period and background. For the Sabatini market.
