When Yance Sackett's sister-in-law is kidnapped, Yance and his brother Kin race north from Carolina to find her. They arrive at a superstitious town rife with rumors, and learn that someone very powerful was behind Diana's disappearance.
To bring the culprit to justice, one brother must sail to the exotic West Indies. There, among pirates, cutthroats, and ruthless "businessmen", he will apply the skills he learned as a frontiersman to an unfamiliar world, a world where one false move means instant death.

"This story, like all of L'Amour's work, is great fun". (Library Journal)
This is another good Lamour book. The narrator is the same from book one and two. He does a good job with the different characters. I was afraid that I would be tired of the story line after the first two books, but that was not the case. This book was just as good and kept my attention.
If you like the first three Sackett books you might also like books by G.A. Henty ("In the Reign of Terror" is a good one to start with or "The Cat of Bubastes".). Lots of history and adventure that's good for all ages.
Amazing! A Western that goes Eastern and does it well. Another l'Amour twister that goes sailing off to the not too far East and returns with all the treasures sought got. John
Curless gives another flawless performance. Typical? Yes, for both author and narrator. Don't miss this one.......three high fives
Excellent example of the genre.
The Last of the Breed

Have and would.
Too many. Loved them all.
Sackett code: come when called.
This entire series is both entertaining and inspiring.
John Cruless does an excellent job bringing the characters of this gripping slice of the Sackett saga to life. This episode has it all, slavery, pirates, romance, fighting and nail biting adventure right up to the end of the book. You will not be disappointed with this epoch of the Sackett's story.
Enjoyable and truly makes the time go by on a commute. Louis L'Amour is an American icon - every boy and girl should read his work.
I reisten (read by listening) to books during exercise sessions. Prefer this to music.
Part of the Sackett series. A continuation of the story told in Sackett's Land and To the Far Blue Mountains. Stands alone but better if read in sequence after the others.
Did a good job with the voices of the characters.
No extreme reaction. Solid story by one of America's great story tellers.
Another great addition to the Sackett Series. Interesting characters and a good story line are carried on in this book. Mr. Lamour continues to tell of the hardships faced by the new pioneers.
Kin Sackett continues to carry the family name proudly when he puts his life on the line to find out why young girls are disappearing from the coastal settlements.
John Curless continues to do a great job as narrator.
