Book Excerpt: 
. . .Don to hang afore Nombre but why must this dog live aft and cosseted? He should walk overboard wi' slit weasand, or better—he's meat for Pompey, and wherefore no? I asks why, Cap'n?"

"Aye—why!" cried Belvedere, gnashing his teeth. "Ask her—go ask Joanna, the curst jade."

"She be only a woman, when all's said, Cap'n—"

"Nay, Job," quoth Belvedere, shaking his head. "She's Joanna and behind her do lie Tressady and Sol and Rory and Abnegation Mings—and all the Fellowship. So if she says he lives, lives it is, to lie soft and feed dainty, curse him. Let me die if I don't wish I'd left her on the island to end him her own way—wi' steel or kindness—"

Nice to catch up with some of the characters from Black Bartlemy's Treasure

From BBC Radio 4 Extra:
The seafaring hero faces more pirates and battles afloat. Jeffrey Farnol's swashbuckling saga with Steven Pacey and Julia Swift.

Originally published on my blog here in June 1998.

This is, of course, the sequel to Black Bartlemy's Treasure, and continues the swashbuckling adventures of Martin Conisby in the Caribbean. At the start of the book, Martin is stranded on his desert island once again. This time, he is alone, until...more

Redemption at its best. There are pirates in this swashbuckling book, but definitely does not glamorize them. Interesting to read yet another castaway book.

A neat sequel to his Black Bartlemy's Treasure. I'd give 5 stars to the first half--which with pirate queen Joanna brings in a character equally volcanic as the narrator, Martin Conisby--and 3 to the second half. After Martin meets his arch-enemy in the dungeons of the Inquisition (Farnol seems t...more

Humph.

Martin was a fool in the first book, and his intellect does not improve in this narrative. An added disappointment is the Lady Joan wasn't in it as much. Instead we are treated to Joanna, a fierce, violent, evil wench. I wished a coconut would fall and knock her senseless. I have no liking...more

This is the sequel to Black Bartlemy's Treasure at the end of which Martin Conisby is deserted on an island. This story begins some 3-years later and Martin is still bent on revenge in spite of having lost all he cared for because of his stubborn desire for revenge. Rescued from the island eventu...more
