A thrilling new adventure ofÂ dangerÂ andÂ deep-sea diving, historic mystery and suspense, by the author of the New York Times bestseller Shadow Divers
Finding and identifying a pirate ship is the hardest thing to do under the sea. But two menâ€”John Chatterton and John Matteraâ€”are willing to risk everything to find the Golden Fleece, the ship of the infamous pirate Joseph Bannister.
At large during the Golden Age of Piracy in the seventeenth century, Bannister should have been immortalized in the lore of the seaâ€”his exploits more notorious than Blackbeardâ€™s, more daring than Kiddâ€™s. But his story, and his ship, have been lost to time.
If Chatterton and Mattera succeed, they will make historyâ€”it will be just the second time ever that a pirate ship has been discovered and positively identified. Soon, however, they realize that cutting-edge technology and a willingness to lose everything arenâ€™t enough to track down Bannisterâ€™s ship. They must travel the globe in search of historic documents and accounts of the great pirateâ€™s exploits, face down dangerous rivals, battle the tides of nations and governments and experts.
But itâ€™s only when they learn to think and act like piratesâ€”like Bannisterâ€”that they become able to go where no pirate hunters have gone before.
Fast-paced and filled with suspense, fascinating characters, history, and adventure, Pirate Hunters is an unputdownable story that goes deep to discover truths and souls long believed lost.
