Stan Russell has a rebellious but honorable soul, and good scotch appears his only vice. Service in a foreign war leads him on a mission to heal. Putting college behind his youthful curiosity leads him to Key West and a vintage schooner captained by a benevolent old mariner. His ladies, one a lovely exiled Cuban determined to aid her homeland and then yet another not so saintly, help steer Stan through intrigue from the islands to the mainland and back. All the while, self-serving powers in Washington force Stan to illicit actions justified by his honorable intentions. Turbulent political winds carry his schooner, Marie, from Key West to Cartejena and the Windwards north. Stan Russell's actions arouse the conscience of the country and directly force the President into the jaws of impeachment. A dark dream pervades the days and nights of this now far from ordinary pirate. Always on the run, death is forever gaining in his wake.
