Cargoes are not only for trading, after all, but for heisting, and this is especially so for illegal shipments, and that was how Ellie's forebears had made their bloody livings: by the hissing of steel cutlasses, at the dark of the moon, on nights so cold that rags of sea smoke trailed over the water like remnants of tattered sails.
