9780007268948: Flint and Silver (John Silver 1)

Rip-roaring adventures for fans of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and Patrick O’ Brian, in these pirate prequels to ‘Treasure Island’.

When all your friends are dead, there's no choice but to join the enemy…

After pirates stormed his merchant's ship, massacring all around them, they found one opponent who wouldn't go down: John Silver. And so with six men dead at his hand, Silver is made an offer he can't refuse: join them or die.

On the other side of the world, the legendary Captain Flint is the meanest, most dangerous bandit on the high seas. He fears no another man – until he meets
fellow freebooter 'Gentleman' John Silver. Together, they forge a formidable partnership as villains-in-arms. But there's more to piracy than rum, sodomy and the lash… there's gold, hundreds of thousands of pieces of it, enough for everyone, in fact – until the arrival of Selina, a beautiful runaway slave, triggers a violent jealousy that turns these best of friends into sworn enemies. And as Flint schemes to secure the vast loot for himself, the legend of Treasure Island begins…

Review:

‘Flint & Silver contains the essential ingredients to attract a worldwide following’ Western Morning News

‘An epic tale of friendship and treason’ The Sea

‘Swashbuckling adventure on the high seas doesn’t get much better than this. If you loved Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island as a kid — and who didn’t? — then you will absolutely love this not-for-kids prequel. John Drake writes beautifully, and you’ll be torn between savoring the words and quickly flipping the pages. Any favorable comparison to Stevenson or Patrick O’Brian is totally justified’ Nelson DeMille

‘Builds to a spectacular crescendo. Drake vigorously recounts bloody exploits and savage adventures, updating Stevenson with the addition of sex and violence, not to mention the pirates’ own highly creative profanity’ Kirkus Review

About the Author:

Having originally trained as a biochemist – before realizing he wasn't much good at science – John Drake became an anchorman for PharmaVision, a live-TV broadcast service produced by ICI Pharmaceuticals. He left in 1999 to become a full-time writer. His hobbies and interests include muzzle-loading shooting, history and politics. ‘Flint and Silver’ was inspired by the many unanswered questions left by Robert Louis Stevenson's much-loved classic, ‘Treasure Island’.
