    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 taverns, 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.

    Overall

    This is predictable, but fun. I wanted something light for a long car ride, and it fit the bill. It kept me awake and made me laugh. John Bedford Lloyd was a terrific reader.

    An enchanting New York Times and international best seller and award-winner about life, art, literature, philosophy, culture, class, privilege, and power, seen through the eyes of a 54-year-old French concierge and a precocious but troubled 12-year-old girl.

    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I am surprised by some of the reviews. This was a fun, light book, a great read for long car trips. I did read one review somewhere that said not to read the book, but to listen to it, which I did. The narration was terrific. Give it a chance.
