    To those who travel there today, the West Indies are unspoiled paradise islands. Yet that image conceals a turbulent, dramatic, and shocking history. For some 200 years after 1650, the West Indies became the strategic center of the Western world, witnessing one of the greatest power struggles of the age as Europeans made and lost immense fortunes growing and trading in sugar - a commodity so lucrative it became known as "white gold".

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but the book got a bit drifty at sea (for me) when the book gave too many details on the characters,,rather than a continuous, good, smooth listen. Overall, if you enjoyed


    Would you be willing to try another book from Matthew Parker? Why or why not?

    Most likely.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    With every wish there comes a curse. Springsteen 1992
