I was in the mood for some pirate adventure when I picked this book up in a charity shop.

Sadly, although the story was well researched and interesting enough, it felt like it was written for a reader younger than a man in his forties. I really wanted to like it and get involved in the characters and to an extent I did, but it never really had me on the edge of my seat.

I would probably read another one if I picked it up cheap, but I wouldn't dash out and buy it full price.

Read the second book in the series before this one. What a wally! However, it was still a really good read, and more so, once you read the historical notes at the end of the story. Enjoyed it very much.
