The right book to pick this time, to quest my thirst on pirate story.

Sir Oliver Tressilian, an English gentleman, who later betrayed by his step brother. His journey brought him to the world of Muslim pirates and warriors which later made him converted to the 'true believers' and later known as Sakr-El-Bahr or the 'Sea Hawk'. As Oliver Tressilian or as Sakr-El-Bahr, he surely was a good man but always captured in bad situation and surrounded by jealous people.

Sabatini amazed me on how he described the life and attitude of the Muslim warriors, which reminded me of the chivalrous behavior of Sultan Saladdin of the third Crusade war.
