Publisher's Summary

Captain James Thatcher and the crew of the sloop Adventure are on a mission - to find the legendary treasure of Captain Morgan and to restore their good names.

James Thatcher is content with the life of a privateer captain. He has his ship, he has his crew, and he has the open sea. Then, with the stroke of a pen, his world is turned on its head. Britain signs an unthinkable treaty with Spain, and this is the change in the political winds that the crooked governor of Jamaica has been waiting for. In a sudden, calculated act of betrayal, Governor Pendleton brands Thatcher’s crew and much of the privateer fleet as pirates.

Other crews resign themselves to a future as outlaws and vagabonds, but Thatcher will not relinquish the honor of his men so easily. A fortune in gold and precious gems is hidden somewhere in an ancient network of Aztec waterways, enough to buy pardons for Thatcher and his crew. The mission is perilous. The map lies in the garrison capital of Port Royal. To recover it, Thatcher must risk the noose. Worse, he must risk a run-in with the one woman he can’t resist, Lady Kate Pendleton, the governor’s daughter. Even more troubling, Pendleton has launched his own venture to find the gold, and he has enlisted the savage crew of the Havoc, captained by Blackbeard himself.

With a deadly foe close on their heels, a woman of questionable loyalties at the captain’s side, and the dark mysteries of the Aztec river tunnels ahead, the crew of the Adventure must keep their courage and wits about them.

But courage and wits may not be enough to navigate the unseen horrors of the Midnight Passage.

    "Great Adventure, Great Characters!"
    Would you listen to Pirates again? Why?

    Yes! I loved the relationships in this book - the give and take between Kate and Thatcher and the honest and loyal friendship between Thatcher and Bane. These characterizations lead to great dialogue that often had me laughing and always kept me riveted.


    What other book might you compare Pirates to and why?

    That's a tough one because this book stands out in the crowd. I would have to say that the banter and adventure reminds me of a Clive Cussler novel set in the 18th century - assuming that Mr. Cussler threw in a strong female lead to balance Dirk Pitt.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are tons of great action scenes in this book, but my favorites are the quite moments between Thatcher and Kate because the dialogue and action there are so witty and smart. To me the best of those is the scene in the small boat, but I don't want to throw out any spoilers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Couldn't turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    James Clamp does a masterful job of narrating. Nothing like using a Brit to do UK accents!
