AKA "God Loves Caviar" an epic life long story of a Greek who turned from an incarcerated pirate, merchant of Caviar to a devotee for the independence of Greece. Interesting historic fiction.

Somewhat didactic bio-epic of a Greek pirate-turned-tycoon who had an interesting life and donated to the Greek independence movement.
Lots of narration and flash-backs.
