Book Summary

Seventeenth-century India. Chhatrapati Shivaji’s dominion has been firmly established over the Deccan peninsula. Troubled by the mounting European threat along the Konkan coast, the Maratha empire turns to Kanhoji Angrey, master mariner, excellent swordsman and astute strategist, to lead its navy. For the next few decades, until his death in 1729, no matter who rules the land or lords over the trading settlements, none can defy Kanhoji’s hold over the waters of the Konkan coast. Join Kanhoji on his many adventures and naval campaigns as he courts danger and evades capture. Manohar Malgonkar’s thrilling storytelling in The Sea Hawk brings to life this ‘Lord of the Konkan’.
