This Pirate Devlin is a definite winner!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cross of Fire: A Pirate Devlin Novel (Pirate Devlin 4) (Hardcover)
This delightful book is the 4th volume of the exciting Patrick Devlin series.
The historical details within this story has as ever been meticously researched by Mark Keating.
What Mark Keating also has done in a most wonderful way is to use the true account of Levasseur's legendary pirate haul.
The story itself is about the hunt at sea for the Fiery Cross of Goa.
That famous treasure is in the possession of Olivier "The Buzzard" Levasseur, who's the captain of the greatest pirate ship of the age.
In pursuit of the Cross, Devlin finds himself in pursuit by his old master and his foe and nemesis, John Coxon.
Written with a great feel of this time of history the story develops therefore in a really exciting pirate adventure and also into a most stunning portrayal of life on the seas.
For me, this is a genuine pirate adventure, for piracy is part of history as well, and therefore this Pirate Devlin is a definite winner!
