By Aleko E. Lilius. With a New Foreword by Paul French
It is 1930 and piracy is rampant on the South China seas. Murderous bands of cutthroats roam the Pearl River Delta and coastal shipping routes, an ever-present menace to the trade of Hong Kong and beyond. Globetrotting journalist Aleko E. Lilius sets out to infiltrate these mysterious pirate gangs, and eats, sleeps and of course sails with them, delivering a sensational, rollicking tale of adventure.
