BLURB

Michael McNamara has one last chance to fight for king and country.
His once-promising career in tatters, McNamara leaves the newly-United Kingdom behind in search of a new life. With no other skills but the sword, he joins forces with a pirate turned pirate hunter determined to rid the Caribbean of the Brotherhood of the Black Flag once and for all.

Eager for the adventure and a worthy cause to fight for, McNamara pits himself against treacherous seas and battle-hardened buccaneers…and uncovers an international conspiracy that threatens thousands of lives.

The Golden Age of Piracy is about to end…but not without one final reckoning.

REVIEW

A swashbuckling tale with an intriguing plot awaits you my fellow readers. An interesting array of well drawn characters fill the pages from the main protagonists to the bit players giving the story an authenticity that held my interest from page one.  The action, both on land and especially at sea, is well conceived. The author has done his homework on the workings of 18th century ships, and the nuances involved in a well fought sword duel. The plot, the redemption of a notorious pirate and his bid to rid the seas of those who still rain death and destruction flying the Black Flag, is well played, and full of twists and turns which leads to a very exciting conclusion. Yes, a swashbuckling delight indeed. 4 Stars
