Tom Bristol's career as first mate of the Maryland Bark Randolph abruptly ends during shore leave when he is press-ganged into serving aboard the British HMS Terror. Toil under the cruel whip of England is merciless: crew members are treated as little more than chattel - barely fed, made to work past the brink of exhaustion, and kept in line with a cat-o'-nine-tails.

Fate finally smiles on young Bristol when the vessel is overtaken by pirates and he gladly turns coat and joins them. Yet Tom's new pirate mates desert him quickly after he's found guilty of killing a mutinous pirate and unwittingly harboring a woman on board.

Marooned on a deserted island, Tom has nothing but a small supply of water, a gun, and just enough bullets to kill himself. But Tom dreams up a devious plan that will return him to the high seas and make his past adventures pale in comparison to what he has in store for his many enemies. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joni | 8/1/2010

    " Typical pulp fiction--short, full of action, but no character development. The bones of a good story are there but is like the author was in such a hurry to get it published he couldn't take time to add some "flesh" to the bones. "

    " A short and nicely done 1930's pulp pirate adventure. Depp need not apply. "
