Harry Manning, a freebooter with a past he doesn't like to talk about, runs a charter boat in the Bahamas. Also, he boozes.
When his sweetheart leaves him by dying, Harry can find no relief. Except for the thought of revenge. And because he is Harry, he sets out to settle the score.
"Vengance is not a noble motive, but as this Jack Higgins parable illustrates, it is a powerful and inspiring companion."
