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.

Iain Lawrence

Iain Lawrence was born in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, the second of four children. He studied journalism in Vancouver and went to work for the Prince Rupert Daily News. Eighteen years later, he went to work on a fish farm before he started writing full-time. He learned to sail at the age of nine, and as he grew up, boating became a huge part of his life. He lives with his long-time partner Kristin and dog Skipper on a remote radio-transmission site on an island off Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
