Under the Black Ensign

A novel by

Riveting, historical accounts of daredevils, pilots and brutal madmen... Tom Bristol's career as first mate of the Maryland bark Randolph abruptly ends during shore leave when he is press - ganged into serving aboard the British HMS Terror. Toil under the cruel whip of England is merciless: Crew members are treated as little more than chattel - barely fed, made to work past the brink of exhaustion and kept in line with a cat - o' - nine - tails. Fate finally smiles on young Bristol when the vessel is overtaken by pirates and he gladly turns coat and joins them.Yet Tom's new pirate mates desert him quickly after he's found guilty of killing a mutinous pirate and unwittingly harboring a woman on board. Marooned on a deserted island, Tom has nothing but a small supply of water, a gun and just enough bullets to kill himself. But Tom dreams up a devious plan that will return him to the high seas and make his past adventures pale compared to what he has in store for his many enemies.... ''Beats any Pirates of the Caribbean story you will find.''
