It’s 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where pirate Edward Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard, controls a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and drunken sailors. Part shantytown, part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other anywhere on the planet and a mounting threat to international trade. To gain control of this fearsome society, Tom Lowe, a highly skilled undercover assassin, is sent to the buccaneers’ haven to take down the brilliant and charismatic Blackbeard. But the closer Lowe gets, the more he finds that his quest is not so simple. Lowe can’t help but admire the political ideals of Blackbeard, whose thirst for knowledge knows no bounds – and no law. But Lowe is not the only danger to Blackbeard’s rule. He is a man with many villainous rivals and one great weakness – a passionately driven woman whom he cannot deny.
