In 1860, a man and woman approach the coast of Africa aboard a swift clipper--in the command of an American who knows no law.

Uncovering their father's trail, Robyn and her brother are in the midst of a slave trade that pours out of Africa like a bloody wound. Now, to survive what they have found, they must make their separate ways out--through pitched battles on land and on sea...and through the pride, passions and fury of their hearts....
