London, 1664. Fifteen years after the English revolution, the monarchy has been restored and Charles II sits on the throne. The men who conspired to kill his father are either dead or have disappeared. Baltasar "Balty" de St. Michel is twenty-four and has no skills, no employment, and no prospects. He gets by on handouts from his brother-in-law Samuel Pepys, an administrator in the Navy Office. Fed up with his needy relative, Pepys offers Balty a job in the colonies that he is in no position to refuse: to track down and capture two judges who sign the death warrent of Charles I before fleeing to the New World. When Balty's ship lands in Boston, he finds himself in a strange country filled with fundamentalist Puritans, saintly Quakers, warring tribes of Indians, and rogues of every stripe. Helped by a man named Huncks, an agent of the Crown with a mysterious past, Balty travels colonial America in search of the regicide judges. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Samuel Pepys prepares for a war with the Dutch that he fears England has no chance of winning.
