The Nemesis Man
An eighteenth-century tale to confound the history books, The Nemesis Man sets sail to the south seas with Captain Cook aboard HM Bark Endeavour. It tells the story of Joseph Fleck, a man of whom there is no other record. Skulduggery his watchword, he is a scoundrel who by turn is a smuggler, fugitive, stowaway, sea-dog, and deserter. His forte is to cause havoc. His malign influence has tragic consequences for many that have the misfortune to cross his path. Whether by sea or land, at home in what would be a Devon full of danger for him, or across two oceans fighting in the tribal war he instigates, he is The Nemesis Man.
