The historical research for this book is outstanding Yet it is not written as a dry textbook but as a story that in most places moves along at the pace of a thriller The meeting of two ships one an Indian treasure ship the other an English pirate ship was fortuitously decided in favour of the pirated even though the Indian ship was far heavily armed What followed immediately after the capture was a disgrace and the book deals with the fall out from the incident which had major repercussions for the East India Company and the British Government It also explains how and why a young man keen to join the Royal Navy turned into a pirate captain I found a few things confusing eg the section about when the pirates took over their ship and released those who did not want to become pirates to return to shore but given the distance in time that is not surprising; it could have been written Bit clearly though The book fascinates throughout and is a compelling read
