Product description

Product Description

“Evelyn Tidman has done a superb job of bringing the adventures of the infamous pirate Bartholomew Roberts to life.”

“Readers are more demanding about historical novels and expect to be taken back in time so that they can visualize the sights, hear the noises and smell the smells. Evelyn achieves this.”

“Brilliantly written and the characters and details are so realistic you feel like you are there on the high seas.”

“Because the story was based on such meticulous research the author writes with great confidence and that inspires the reader.”

Historic characters come to life in this swashbuckling epic about the pirate Bartholomew Roberts.

Learn about pirate laws and customs.

When pirates capture a slave ship on the West African coast, third mate and ex-British naval seaman Bartholomew Roberts is forced to join the company. The death of the pirate captain catapults him into office as leader of a drunken, rebellious crew. His first act of piracy sees him on the Coast of Brazil, taking a Portuguese treasure ship, and capturing the beautiful Lúcia. As Roberts takes the pirate company into adventure and fabulous treasure in the Caribbean and on the Slave and Ivory Coasts, he becomes so successful that he brings British trade to a standstill. Can the Admiralty stop him? Will his love for Lúcia threaten the pirate company?
GENTLEMAN OF FORTUNE is a swashbuckling adventure and is based on the true story of Bartholomew Roberts.
