During the Summer Break after his sophomore year of college, a privileged young man goes through one terrible ordeal after another. He survives an accident at sea to awaken alone and adrift. Eventually, he is found and taken aboard a boat that has an unusual crew. The crew’s codes-of-conduct are centuries old, their ship is modern, and their motives and way of life are barbaric.
