In 17th century England, a terrible accident forces orphaned Philip Marsham to flee London in fear for his life. Bred to the sea, he signs on with the Rose of Devon, a dark frigate bound for the quiet shores of Newfoundland.

Philip's bold spirit and knowledge of the sea soon win him his captain's regard. But when the Rose of Devon is seized in mid-ocean by a devious group of men plucked from a floating wreck, Phlip is forced to accompany these gentlemen of fortune on their murderous expeditions. Like it or not, Philip Marsham is now a pirate - with only the hangman awaiting his return to England.

With its bloody battles, brutal buccaneers, and bold, spirited hero, this rousing tale will enthrall all listeners in search of seafaring adventure. Download and start listening now!

    " Pretty good, as adventure stories go. I kind of want to go through and look up all the words I didn't know, but I don't know that I enjoyed the book all that much. It's not as fun as The Prisoner of Zenda, but not as convoluted as something like The Count of Monte Cristo. The justice near the end was quite exciting and good, but the final part of the ending left a bit to be desired. "

    " A difficult read with all the sea-faring terminology. Very interesting, and Hawes was an excellent writer. "

    " I liked this book. Did I understand all the ship terminology and pirate lingo? Nope. But it did lend an authentic feeling to the time and setting. The characters are great. The language describing some of the more violent pirate acts is pretty bloody. Certainly not the language you'd expect in a Newbury written nowadays, but I kinda like the fact that it's not wussy. Thus 4 stars. "

    " A great Pirate tale that doesn't read like it was written in 1923. "
