--> "“When all is said, a man's final judgment of his fellows must be based upon his knowledge of himself”

Betrayed by his brother, scorned by his lover, and outcast from his country, Sir Oliver Tresselian turns renegade and joins the Muslim corsairs under Asad-ed-Din. He finds great success in this, and becomes known as Sakr-el-Bahr - the Hawk of the Sea. He eventually returns to his Cornish home to exact revenge, and sets in motion a series of events that leads to great risk - and even greater rewards.

This novel by RafaelSabatini, was one of the three (along with ''Captain Blood'' and ''{{Scaramouche}}'') that launched his success. It was adapted InNameOnly into a [[Film/TheSeaHawk film]] starring ErrolFlynn in 1940, but like most Sabatini novels it has lost much of its popularity.

!!The book provides examples of:

* AffablyEvil: Asad, for all that he is a ruthless corsair, is a devout Muslim and very kind to his friends and family.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Lionel, when he carries Oliver's message to Sir John.]]
* BadassLonghair: Oliver and Asad both.
* BlueBlood: Sir John, Rosamund, and Peter. Oliver to a lesser degree - he was knighted for bravery, but isn't an hereditary noble.
* TheCorruptible: Lionel.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Being an oar-slave for Oliver. Later, for Rosamund: becoming part of Asad's harem.
* MadeASlave: Oliver [[spoiler: and, later, Lionel and Rosamund.]]
* MamaBear: Fenzileh will do ANYTHING to advance Marzak's future.
* ParentalSubstitute: Oliver for Lionel, [[spoiler: Which makes Lionel's betrayal hurt even more.]]
* {{Pirate}}: Jasper, Oliver, and Asad are all corsairs.
