9780062046765: Pirate Latitudes

An irresistible tale of swashbuckling pirates in the New World from master storyteller Michael Crichton

Jamaica, in 1665 a lone outpost of British power amid Spanish waters in the sunbaked Caribbean. A barren, inhospitable country barely under the rule of law. A sleazy seaport of rum and villainy… and the last place imaginable from which to launch an unthinkable attack on a nearby Spanish stronghold. Yet that is exactly what renowned privateer Captain Charles Hunter plans to do, with the connivance of Charles II's ruling governor, Sir James Almont.

The target is Matanceros, considered impregnable with its gun emplaqcements and sheer cliffs. And Hunter's crew of buccaneers must battle not only the Spanish fleet but other deadly perils – raging hurricanes, cannibal tribes, even sea monsters. But if his ragtag crew succeeds, they will make not only history… but a fortune in gold.

A tale rich in research and historical detail, ‘Pirate Latitudes’ is in the best tradition of Crichton's storytelling powers.

Product Description:

An irresistible tale of swashbuckling pirates in the New World from master storyteller Michael Crichton – now in paperback

Jamaica, in 1665 a lone outpost of British power amid Spanish waters in the sunbaked Caribbean. Its capital, Port Royal, a cuthroat town of taverns, grog shops and bawdy houses – the last place imaginable from which to launch an unthinkable attack on a nearby Spanish stronghold. Yet that is exactly what renowned privateer Captain Charles Hunter plans to do, with the connivance of Charles II's ruling governor, Sir James Almont.

The target is Matanceros, guarded by the bloodthirsty Cazalla, and considered impregnable with its gun emplacements and sheer cliffs. Hunter's crew of buccaneers must battle not only the Spanish fleet but other deadly perils – raging hurricanes, cannibal tribes, even sea monsters. But if his ragtag crew succeeds, they will make not only history ... but a fortune in gold.

Product Description:

The new thriller from Michael Crichton, one of the most famous authors in the world, will be the most exciting, anticipated publication of Christmas 2008.

Following on from the bestselling 'Next', Michael Crichton's new novel will repeat the winning formula established with novels such as 'Jurassic Park': to identify future trends in science and imagine the most astonishing – and terrifying – possibilities that they hold for Mankind.

Always interesting, often controversial, 'Next and 'State of Fear' put him straight back in the headlines – and bestseller charts – and reaffirmed his position as the thriller master. Nothing less is expected of the next book from the man who managed to make subjects such as DNA, nanotechnology and global warming both enormously popular and hugely exciting.
