Advance praise for "Pirate Hunters"
"A great thriller full of tough guys and long odds . . . and: It's all true."--Lee Child
""Pirate Hunters" is a fantastic book, an utterly engrossing and satisfying read. It tells the story of the hunt for the rare wreck of a pirate ship, which had been captained by one of the most remarkable pirates in history. This is a real-life "Treasure Island, " complete with swashbuckling, half-crazy treasure hunters and vivid Caribbean settings--a story for the ages."--Douglas Preston, #1 "New York Times" bestselling co-author of "Riptide" and "The Lost Island"

Advance praise for "Pirate Hunters"
""Pirate Hunters" is a gripping account of two courageous divers' quest to uncover the shipwrecked vessel of Joseph Bannister, one of history's most infamous pirates. Robert Kurson will keep you on the edge of your seat in this high-stakes journey around the globe that ultimately teaches these explorers about much more than an old ship."--Sen. John McCain
