A Pirate's Tale

(2016)
The Only Solution is Retribution
A novel by

 
Leonidas Piper watched from the surface of Jergan as the warship he was serving on with his best friend was blasted into rubble by John Blakely's Pirate Fleet. That warship was all they had left after the Unity Government disbanded their mercenary legion. Now nothing remained of it but gas and debris in orbit above Jergan. Two years later fate stepped in again; Leonidas was on a commercial Starliner traveling to Kellinger when it was stopped and boarded by a crew of pirates led by John Blakely. Blakely murdered three passengers but failed to acquire the code to open the Starliner's safe. He was forced to leave empty handed.

Leonidas is approached after the attack by a young woman offering to pay him to go after and kill Blakely for the murder of two of her family members, which is exactly what Leonidas was planning all along; he owed Blakely for Mark's death.

However, things get complicated quickly when he learns the identity of this passenger, along with the contents of the wall safe. In no time at all, he and his benefactor are running for their lives and escape doesn't look good.

A Pirate's Tale takes place in the Filament Universe and it doesn't take long to determine that knowing who the good and bad guys are is nearly impossible. The twists and turns will keep you guessing and leave you wondering if the 'Only Solution is Retribution'.

Excerpt: A Pirate's Tale
The tall pirate turned to the man, "Serge, I need the code to open the safe."
The man raised his chin and said defiantly, "I won't give it to you. Too many families have trusted me with their life savings and I'll not betray them. Kill me if you must but I will not give you the code."

The pirate walked over in front of the middle aged man and shook his index finger at Serge, "Tisk, tisk! I wouldn't be so stupid as to kill you. Then, how would I get the code."
Serge smiled, "Exactly!"
The pirate suddenly pulled a dagger out of a scabbard on his belt, moved forward, and jammed it into the top of the woman's head standing next to Serge. It penetrated all the way to the hilt and the woman fell right where she was standing without making a sound. Serge's mouth went wide open as one of the young girls standing next to him fell to the floor on top of the dead woman wailing and sobbing. The Pirate shook his head, "Serge, Serge, Serge, why does it have to be like this? The next one to die will be one of your daughters here and if that doesn't work, I'll have her baby brought down from the nursery and continue this exercise. Why don't you save me the trouble and just give me the code."

A Pirate's Tale will keep you spinning as Leonidas travels the filaments in search of retribution against a deadly adversary. Sit back and ride the filaments as the Pirate Ship Thermopylae struggles to survive in a dangerous galaxy filled with villains and aliens beyond your wildest imagination.
