The book follows Kemp’s many misfortunes. After being mistaken for a smuggler he is forced to leave England with his adventurer cousin Carlos, and Carlos’ companion, the (possibly) piratical Castro. After arriving in Jamaica, Kemp parts ways with them, fearing they have dishonest connections. However after nearly getting arrested, and then nearly killed by a fanatical Irish nationalist called O’Brien, he is finally forced to rejoin them.
