Summary: This book follows the life of Charles Hunter a "privateer" on the rascal-ridden island of Jamaica. While he'd never consider himself a pirate, this book is full of pirate-goodness. Hunter goes on a quest to plunder a Spanish Galleon, marooned for the season on a Spanish island. There is (alternately): prostitution, dirty politicians, cannibals, shipwrecks, sea-battles, Spanish fortresses, and, of course, treasure (as all good pirate novels should have).

Review: This was just good, clean fun. Well, not clean, and not necessarily morally good. But it was enjoyable. Near the end of the book I was appalled! I was completely on the pirate's side. He deserved that gold; he worked hard for it! Who knew I'd fall for the bad-guy.
