The first tale was slow to engage this reader - but perseverance was rewarded as these linked adventure stories are fast paced and cunningly plotted. Sabatini brings to the reader's "mind's eye" the layout of the privateer's ship; and the colour and lifestyle of the early colonial Caribbean. The Spanish view of the New World as their exclusive preserve is being challenged by British, French, and Dutch traders and privateers so conflict ensues.

When the Protestant-based Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 failed to overthrow King Charles II, a Catholic, about 500 rebels were transported to the Caribbean as slave workers on plantations. Peter Blood escaped to become a buccaneer. This book offers six tales of Captain Blood's adventures, which often use disguise and guile rather than cannon and cutlass, to vanquish his opponents to capture treasure and free the innocent.
