Publisher's Summary

A swashbuckling triumph of storytelling, Flint and Silver provides a thrilling ride back to the rich and wondrous world of Long John Silver and his fiendish nemesis Joseph Flint in this prequel to the beloved classic Treasure Island.

John Silver had never killed a man. Until now, his charisma, sheer size and, when all else failed, powerful fists had been enough to dispatch his enemies. But on a smoldering deck off the coast of Madagascar, his shipmates dead or dying all around him, his cutlass has just claimed the lives of six pirates. Finding himself surrounded by their revenge-thirsty crewmates, Silver fears his promising merchant navy career is at an end. But then the pirate captain makes him an offer he can't refuse.

On the other side of the world, Joseph Flint, a naval officer wronged by his superiors, plots a bloody mutiny. Strikingly handsome, brilliant, but prey to sadistic tendencies, Flint is regarded as the most dangerous bandit on the high seas.

Together these gentlemen of fortune forge a deadly and unstoppable partnership, steering a course through treachery and betrayal while amassing vast treasure.

But the arrival of Selena, a beautiful runaway slave with a murderous past, and Flint's schemes to secure the pieces of gold for himself trigger a rivalry that will turn the best of friends into sworn enemies.

And so the legend of Treasure Island begins - an epic battle of wits and blades that unravels the mysteries of Robert Louis Stevenson's greatest work on the sweltering seas of the Caribbean.

    "What a surprise!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Flint & Silver to be better than the print version?

    Having only watched the movie version of Treasure Island, I didn't really know why I bought this audiobook but it was a real dilight from start to finish. It was a good story which seemed to follow (or preceed) what I remembered from the movie so it made me buy the original Treasure Island audiobook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Long John Silver I remembered as a villian, but in this book he was not only a victim, but a genuine hero.


    What does Tim Gregory bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The reading was very good by Tim who seemed to be as much into the story as I was.


    Who was the most memorable character of Flint & Silver and why?

    The author advised that, although Treasure Island was a children's book, Flint and Silver (and the subsequent books) are aimed at adults.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait for the 2 sequels (but still prequels to Treasure Island?) to come out on audiobook. Bring It On!

    "Gentleman of Fortune"

    Great job. I am glad that I'm not not the only lubber who had in interest in Captain Flint. I personally would love for John and Tim to include other pirate characters in these books like Jack Rackem, and Ann Bonny and Mary Reed, not forgetting Ned low, and Edward Teach. I enjoyed every minute of this. I will purchase the sequel. I would like to think you brethren of the sea, for the time and effort in writing this prequel. Arrrg! ~ Marc Anthony

    "Great to listen to"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It was well done and compliments Treasure Island very well and answers a lot of questions and never answered by the original. one may want to listen to the final chapter the author's notes first as they would help in understanding The Complete Book.
