All children, except one, are born and this is the story of how this strange fact occured. On April 28th, 1829, one of King George IV’s secret lovers gives birth to a baby. Both mother and child are then sent to live in the Far East, on the coasts of the pirate-infested Malabar sea. James Fry goes to sea when he’s only thirteen. Among adventures, shipwrecks, fights with crocodiles and mutinies, he starts a career as a pirate that will make him the most wanted man in the East Indies. But this is another story, the story of a boy who grows up and becomes a man, of his passion for the sea, his adventures and a nostalgic tie with a mysterious and troublesome past.
