Description

Lieutenant Cornelius Van-slyperken is the greedy and treacherous commander of a small vessel that hunts for smugglers in the English Channel. Snarleyyow is his 'indestructible' dog. Set in 1699 and framed around the Jacobite (supporters of the overthrown king, James II) conspiracies of the time, this is the first of three works in which Marryat builds his story around historical events, rather than those of his own time.

Author Biography

Captain Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) was an actual 19th-century British naval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian. He survived fifty naval battles on the crack frigate Imperieuse under Lord Cochrane-the real-life model for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey. In addition to plenty of cannonfire, battle strategy, peril, and passion-liberally sprinkled with wit and fine turns of phrase-Marryat's real-life naval experiences lend his novels a truly remarkable authenticity.
