CAPTAIN SHARK: BY PIRATES'S BLOOD...

BY RICHARD SILVER

CAPTAIN SEBASTIAN SHARK

Baptized in blood and fire, he's a buccaneer captain of the Caribbean in the seventeenth century. Those were adventurous years, when men dared to seek their fortunes between the deadly horrors of the Spanish Inquisition and seas infested with cutthroat pirate ships.

Shark was such a man, an adventurer who had faced Henry Morgan at Panama, escaped from the Barbary Corsairs, and sailed through countless battles across the Spanish Main.

He considered his life merely a ticket to an uncertain future, hopefully filled with good wine, chests of gold, a fiery woman or two ... and a sturdy ship to meet the enemy and a never-ending horizon.

Come aboard for a breathtaking race into the glorious past, when the seas churned with ships at war, when the skies were clouded with the smoke of battle, and the sounds of cannon and cutlass tore the air. Not since Rafael Sabatini's Captain Blood has there been a tale of pirates and buccaneers as authentic and as exciting as this ... watch for the next adventure of Captain Shark!
