Oliver Tressilian, a Cornish gentleman who helped defeat the Spanish Armada, is betrayed by his jealous half-brother. When the ship he is on is captured by the Spanish, he is made a galley slave. Freed from slavery by Barbary pirates, he joins up with them and becomes a follower of Islam and the scourge of European ships. Taking the name “Sakr-el-Bahr,” or “The Hawk of the Sea,” he swears vengeance against his brother. It is this desire for revenge that brings him back to British shores, where he is a wanted man.

    " Excellent old-time swashbuckling adventure! "

    " What a wonderful book! I read Scaramouche some time ago, and I enjoyed it enough to pick up this one, but, wow, this one was just so much more fun. An easy, quick read; there's no deep philosophical meaning or message here. Strong hero, heroine with a backbone, villians that get their just desserts in the end and plenty of easily seen, but still thrilling dips and turns. Overall just a well-written, well-plotted, lark of a story. "

    " Brilliant writing. This author should be a must read for would-be authors. "

    " The Sea-Hawk was just a fun book to read. It was fluffy and adventurous and somewhat silly. The main character was superhuman in almost all of his qualities. Of course he won in the end. But still, it was a nice book. "
