(From the publisher):
Literate and witty, Nicholas Nicastro's debut novel probes the complex character of John Paul Jones as he navigates the military, political, and romantic battlefields of Revolutionary America and France. Told in the voice of a fictitious American officer, the story conjures up a vivid cast of high and low characters among racy cameos of well-drawn historical figures, and steers them through a rich landscape of rousing adventure and telling period detail.
