"The Old Corsair" is an intricate, mystery-driven political thriller that blends historical fact and inventive fiction in a captivating narrative. The story pivots around a historical character, Vernon "Cyclops" Tunney, a sailor lost to the annals of time, and the strong, flawed protagonist of the present day, Naval Intelligence Officer Terrie Murphy.

In 2004, a seventeen-year-old Terrie receives a package containing chilling evidence of her sister's brutal murder by unseen enemies. Her pleas for justice fall on deaf ears, both within the government and the media. Nine years later, as a newly promoted Naval Intelligence Officer, Terrie is assigned to monitor the demolition of an old marina, supposedly the site of the nation's first intelligence office. Instead, she stumbles upon a trail of hidden history leading back to 1788, a captured and refitted pirate vessel renamed, Neptune's Trident, and her enigmatic captain, Vernon Tunney.

As she delves deeper into the clues unearthed from colonial-era newspapers, classified Navy archives, and a discovered logbook to a missing merchant vessel, Terrie becomes entwined in a spiraling mystery. She faces obstacles thrown in her path by a dogged federal agent, keen on concealing a secret guarded by the government for centuries. This secret also draws the attention of a traitor hidden within government ranks, one who has personal ties to Terrie's own tragedy.

"The Old Corsair" is a thrilling journey through past and present, where historical secrets are intertwined with personal vendettas, and the pursuit of truth comes at a dangerous cost.
