This review is from: If a Pirate I Must Be...: The True Story of Bartholomew Roberts - King of the Caribbean (Hardcover)
This is a terrific book. It's well researched but doesn't bash you over the head with the fact. It manages to be an exciting read without playing hard and fast with the truth (one or two assumption wobbles aside), and is really a great lesson in how to combine journalistic skills with compelling narrative.
