archersangel: (books)
[personal profile] archersangel
a really interesting book about the pirate turned pirate hunter who wasn't as ruthless or had as much treasure as people thought.

after his time as a pirate in the caribbean he settled in new york city, married a wealthy widow & became respectable. through a chance meeting he is commissioned by william III of england to capture pirates in the indian ocean. run-ins with the english navy, his crew not being paid because they can't find any pirates & crossing paths with his old shipmate (& mutineer ETA: against kidd) robert culliford lead to his eventual downfall.
