Fight for Freedom Summary


Fight for Freedom by Mark Keating

Sold by his father for four guineas, Patrick Devlin knows just how cheap life is in a world of slavery, violence and greed.

Devlin is taken as a servant by Captain John Coxon of the Royal Navy, whose job in this uneasy peace time is to protect the stupendous wealth of the East India Trading Company.

But when pirates sink Coxon's ship, Devlin willingly trades his servile existence for their life of dangerous liberty.

And when he sets off in pursuit of a secret cargo of French bullion, it is Coxon - disgraced and hungry for revenge - who is despatched to bring his former dog to heel.

Fight for Freedom was published in hardback under the title The Pirate Devlin.

Fight for Freedom Reviews


Top quality historical fiction. Mark Keating knows his period inside-out and his stylish prose and devilish plot fold it into a gripping read. This is the start of something big. * Harry Sidebottom, author of Warrior of Rome *
A superbly imagined, vividly written debut. Devlin is set to become the Sharpe of the high seas. * Saul David, author of Zulu Hart *
