Two time-traveling special agents and a feisty young lady pirate captain join forces to prevent the course of history from being changed. Zane Kirby and Gus McAbee travel back from the future to the Bahamas of 1717, where pirates rule the waves and Spanish gold is the prize that attracts them. The two agents of the Federal Bureau of Temporal Regulation must find a renegade from their own day - Roger Turnbuckle - before the modern weapons he has smuggled back through time to the pirates of the past can upset the balance of power in the Caribbean and change history. This science-fiction adventure comedy adds a new twist to pirate lore, by the author of The Cross of St. Anne, Murder in Deer Park, and Mysteries at Midnight.

"A heck of a good team."
A light-hearted romp with agents Gus and Zane, sent back in time to 1717 to stop history being changed by pirates. The story is breezy and fun, the characters colourful and their disguises, well, unusual.
Nicholas Patrella's narration is spirited and fast paced, well suited to the tale, and his voicings of the assorted crew are full of flair and imagination. He completely carries the story with his performance.
My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a copy of Jolly Roger, via Audiobook Boom. It's silly and fun, just right to fill an otherwise tedious hour.
