Publisher's Summary

Tom Bristol's career as first mate of the Maryland Bark Randolph abruptly ends during shore leave when he is press-ganged into serving aboard the British HMS Terror. Toil under the cruel whip of England is merciless: crew members are treated as little more than chattel - barely fed, made to work past the brink of exhaustion, and kept in line with a cat-o'-nine-tails.Fate finally smiles on young Bristol when the vessel is overtaken by pirates and he gladly turns coat and joins them. Yet Tom's new pirate mates desert him quickly after he's found guilty of killing a mutinous pirate and unwittingly harboring a woman on board.Marooned on a deserted island, Tom has nothing but a small supply of water, a gun, and just enough bullets to kill himself. But Tom dreams up a devious plan that will return him to the high seas and make his past adventures pale in comparison to what he has in store for his many enemies.


What the Critics Say

"This is a gem in American pulp fiction, in all its campy glory. The full-cast performance, complete with sound effects, only enhances its appeal." (AudioFile)
