Profile of Marcus Palliser
Marcus Palliser left a job as Director of Communications at a large computer corporation to live on a small yacht and sail the Mediterranean. He crossed the Atlantic single-handed before returning to Britain to write a trilogy of elegant—and well-received—historical seafaring novels. Matthew's Prize, A Devil of a Fix, and To the Bitter End explore life in the Caribbean at a time when it was filled with pirates and warring imperial powers, and have a fresh and invigorating perspective backed by painstaking historical research.

Matthew's Prize
Struggling to adhere to his own code of honour yet seduced by life at sea, young Matthew Loftus carries in his heart the hope of reclaiming his rightful legacy and the woman he left behind. Fierce sea battles, lawless privateers, naval skirmishes and ruthless slave traders combine in a story set in one of the most colourful periods in maritime history. See Details
