The brig Glimpse sails from Chog's Cove, Rhode Island as a privateer to make the fortunes of its officers and crew by preying upon British commerce in the Caribbean. For a time all goes well until the capture of a sloop of dubious registry causes trouble for all aboard the Glimpse. Tight and square. Scarce.
