Publisher's Summary

Michael Crichton as you've never seen him - an irresistible tale of swashbuckling pirates in the New World, a classic story of treasure and betrayal. 

"A terrific novelist.... He could make most readers lose sleep all night and call in sick the next day." (San Francisco Chronicle)

THE ICONIC BEST SELLER AS YOU'VE NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE

An irresistible tale of swashbuckling pirates in the New World; a classic story of treasure and betrayal Jamaica in 1665 is a rough outpost of the English crown, a minor colony holding out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, Jamaica's capital, a cut-throat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses, is devoid of London's luxuries; life here can end swiftly with dysentery or a dagger in your back.

But for Captain Charles Hunter it is a life that can also lead to riches, if he abides by the island's code. In the name of His Majesty King Charles II of England, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking.

Word in port is that the Spanish treasure galleon El trinidad, fresh from New Spain, is stalled in nearby Matanceros harbour awaiting repairs. With the help of his cunning crew, Hunter hijacks El trinidad and escapes the deadly clutches of its commander, the blood-swilling Cazalla, leaving plenty of carnage in his wake. But his troubles have just begun....

"A master." (Los Angeles Times)

"Crichton writes superbly...the excitement rises with each page." (Chicago Tribune)
