Ready of wit and skilled of blade, the elegant surgeon-buccaneer Captain Blood is ever a jump ahead of his foes. Time and again, he falls headlong into deep peril, and his own motley crew are happy to sail to hell and back at his command. Yet when everything is stacked against him, can he keep his honour until the bitter end?

Review:

"An avenging angel, his oppressor's worst nightmare, the modern avatar of the Count of Monte Cristo. In the wake of Sabatini's dashing buccaneer come C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian, but also James Bond and Dick Francis" ( Washington Post)

"Captain Blood is a Dick Turpin of the High Seas, a seafaring version of The Scarlet Pimpernel, a Caribbean Zorro" (Kate Mosse from the introduction to the Vintage edition of 'Captain Blood')

"Buckles never swashed more dashingly" (John Sutherland Guardian)

"I liked the idea that the hero was also the villain. He was a pirate with a conscience and that idea was to be very strong in my books" (Eoin Colfer)
