“Pirate Hunter” (Book Review)

I am linking up with my friends in the Soli Deo Gloria group. Here’s a book that not only they, but the men in their life, would probably enjoy!

Morrisey, Tom. Pirate Hunter. Bethany House, Minneapolis, 2009.

I’m not normally a big pirate fan, but I really loved this book. Morrisey switches back and forth between two stories: a lovable 16th-century “privateer” with his crew, a young slave whom they freed, and their mainland friends; and a contemporary treasure hunt featuring a marine archaeologist and his employer and colleagues.

Both the former slave and the present-day marine archaeologist have serious issues with the father figures in their lives. One takes to the seas seeking revenge; the other, merely to escape. How well will their strategies work to solve their problems?

The parallels between the stories, the twists, turns, romance and heart-stopping suspense in both, the movie-quality shifts between the two, and the anticipation that they’ve gotta be somehow connected — it all made this adventure pure fun.

Find it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and local bookstores. Mr. Morrisey lists more books on his website, so if you’ll excuse me, I want to pick another tale to lose myself in…

Thanks for reading!
