The intriguing story of three famous pirates in history, Scarlet Jack, Red Martin and Blackbeard as they terrorized a ship, took the captain and a young family prisoner. How their lives intertwined throughout this story of swashbuckling buccaneers with romance, savagery and the heroics of a slave makes this story originally told in the 1800's one of the best historical fiction accounts ever written.
Huggins Point Editors endeavors to bring forth original fiction and first hand accounts of real pirates in the late 17th and 18th century. Obscure court accounts along with the more well-known reports of trials in England, Scotland, Canada and the United States have been included in the first two of the PIRATE TRIALS series. Books three and four, of which this book is the fourth, include fictional accounts of some of history' most illustrious and bloodthirsty pirates, who were criminals of the worse kind and indeed 'serial killers'. The result of these four books is to provide an accurate reflection of the dastardly deeds committed by these various and sundry villains. The first two books of the details of the trials reflected arraignment hearings, a move by United States officials in a Crown Canadian Court to extradite Confederate privateers from Canada on charges of piracy; and the remarkable account of Chief Justice John Marshall presiding over the trial of Three Spaniards for their role in the murder of the crew in a piratical act that begin shortly after the ship left Cuba and ended with their apprehension in Virginia. Some of the same issues and legal points decided in that case are pertinent in modern trials as well. The Pirate fiction presented in PIRATE TRIALS Famous Murderous Pirates Book Series books three and four includes little known to the contemporary reader, prose that is both engaging and colorful, moving quickly across the page. These are the accounts that movies are made from! Please enjoy them, which was the intent of the original authors as well as Huggins Point Editors. Thanks for joining us for these adventures!
