Sabatini was a highly successful adventure writer during the first part of the 20th century and Sea Hawk, Scaramouche and Captain Blood are all still in print. Sea Hawk is the story of Oliver Tressilian, a Cornish knight and gentleman who is framed by his brother for a murder he did not commit, is dreadfully wronged by his fiancee, and is subsequently kidnapped and ends up becoming a feared Barbary pirate, with the muslim name of Sakr-el-Bahr (Hawk of the Sea). However, Sir Oliver only has one thing on his mind - revenge for what has been done to him, and everything he does leads toward that end. This is fine adventure writing, with the reader rooting for Tressilian, a man driven to become harsh and cruel by what has happened to him but deep within whom there still resides the Cornish gentleman. If you like swashbucklers then this one comes highly recommended.

Captures the era of Elizabeth 1 and the seafaring privateers who 'singed the king of Spain's beard.'
