Review Text

"Things are gettin' serious" as the Capitol burns, Fort McHenry is shelled, and the packet Fair Molly turns from tourist shuttle to privateer, plucking, prizes and prisoners from Delaware and New Jersey waters. Will(ing) Hand, the Captain's son, trails money-seeking traitors in the spy trade, be-friends an injured British sailor with Yankee sympathies, pushes his luck, and bones up on his readin' an' writin' to put Princeton in the offing. Water-logged war games and dry land-roving, so sailors take warning. (Kirkus Reviews)
