Description: Set in the 18th century's Golden Age of Piracy, this is the tale of a young recruit, William Williams, and his forced apprenticeship to (the real-life legend) Bartholomew Roberts, slaver turned pirate captain. Acting as biographer to the captain and fiddler to the crew (which includes the learned naturalist Dr. Scudamore and the Yoruban warrior Innocent, who named himself after the Pope), Williams plies the waters from the Caribbean to West Africa, recording their moments of bravery and cowardice, and their countless conflicts with the mariners, merchants, whores, and outlaws who populate the ends of the known world.

But as Williams becomes more accepted by the crew, he ceases to be simply an impartial biographer and he struggles to understand his own participation -- and occasional affinity for -- the brutality of their existence. As the British Navy hunts them down and the fanatical Captain Roberts drives them on to even richer prizes, the novel reaches a spine-tingling and utterly unforgettable denouement.
