The fourth installment in the Adrien English Mysteries Death of a Pirate King not only lives up to the promise of the previous books, in many respects it surpassed my expectations which were already quite high. It is readily apparent that author Josh Lanyon has hit his stride in this book on all fronts.

While it is virtually impossible to provide more detail on the mystery without completely giving away the plot, I will say that the author has written an outstanding mystery plot in particular in respect of his characterization of the perpetrator who is a master manipulator – a cold, calculating and cruel sociopath. The mystery stories in each of the previous books had always served as separate backdrops to Adrien and Jake’s relationship. In Death of a Pirate King the author blurs these lines whereby the circumstances surrounding the crime mystery and those of Jake and Adrien’s relationship become intimately entwined.
