London, England Autumn 1672 Lacy Bennett stepped from the dank shadows of Newgate Prison into the bright September morning.

Well told, Wonderful and Exciting Pirate & Privateer Saga!

This is the first in French’s “Fortune trilogy” and it’s one pirate tale not to be missed!

Great Story

This was an action packed, fast paced book about two people who escape the gallows and fall in love. Their relationship was of the tumultuous variety but had a very steamy love life as they seek a sunken treasure. I have read most of Judith French's books and none have ever let me down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a real page turner and had me hooked right from the first page. I look forward to the next two in the trilogy.
