Nick Korolev

Author Nick Korolevabout this book: For Historical Fiction readers who like stories based on real history with a good dose of controversy Storm Warning is for you. Part sea chase and part courtroom drama, this is the story of notorious slaver, Nathaniel Gordon, the only slaver hung for the crime of piracy by an 1820's law declaring slavers to be pirates that was never enforced until the Lincoln administration. It is also the story of those men who brought him to justice from the US Navy crew of the USS Mohican that captured him with 970 slaves, mostly children, crammed aboard his small ship to the judges and prosecuting lawyers, and the defense lawyers who tried to save him from the gallows taking the case all the way to the President Lincoln on the requests of his naïve young wife and mother. Heavily researched, Storm Warning is a story that bursts from one of the darkest parts of American history putting light on the true cause of the Civil War.

• "Storm Warning is an emotional roller coaster ride with sharp turns and breathtaking ups and downs. I highly recommend Storm Warning to all Civil War enthusiasts."
— Paul Bourget, President, Bourget & Associates, Inc.
