Requiem Shark by Nicholas Griffin

Book Description

Set in the 18th century's Golden Age of Piracy, THE REQUIEM SHARK is the tale of a young recruit, William Williams and his forced apprenticeship to Bartholomew Roberts, slaver turned pirate Captain. Enlisted first as a musician, then as the Captain's biographer, Williams learns to negotiate the seas of the Caribbean and West Africa recording their conflicts with the merchantmen and whores, tribesmen and soldiers that populated the ends of the known world. Influenced by shipmates, from the learned Dr Scudamore to Innocent, ex-slave and sole member of his own religion, Williams struggles to justify his own position within the Royal Fortune, as the British Navy hunt them down and the fanatical Captain Roberts drives the ship onwards to the ultimate prize - the mysterious treasure ship...Rich in historical detail and based upon the last years of the most successful pirate known to history, THE REQUIEM SHARK is a gripping adventure set in a brutal environment dominated by gold, disease and blood.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » A young sailor, William Williams, the reluctant companion and biographer to pirate captain Bartholomew Roberts, records the successes, failures and atrocities of the captain and crew on their journey across the high seas in pursuit of an elusive treasure ship. The simple democracy of a pirate vessel is a brutal world but Williams finds himself drawn into the freedom it conveys, even as the Royal Navy closes in. Based upon the life of the 18th-century's most successful pirate, this is an insightful novel rich in nautical and period detail. (Kirkus UK)
