The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of grog shops and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease--or by dagger.
For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it. Word in port is that a galleon, fresh from New Spain, is awaiting repairs in a nearby harbor. But Hunter will lose more than one man before he even sets foot on its shores. . . .
With all the page-turning suspense that readers have come to expect from one of the best-loved authors of all time, "Pirate Latitudes" is an irresistible adventure of swashbuckling pirates in the New World, a classic story of treasure and betrayal.
