Based on the final voyage of the most successful captain in the history of piracy, The Requiem Shark is the tale of William Williams, a pampered young man forced into service aboard the ship of the dreaded Bartholomew Roberts-also known as Black Bart. With a level of education that sets him apart from his illiterate shipmates, Williams becomes the biographer to the pirate captain and slowly grows to manhood in the violent world of piracy, struggling to retain his humanity while sailing the blood-red seas. A graphic, rousing literary debut, rich in historical detail, this novel will transport readers to a distant age where all a man needed was the wind at his back, the open seas, and the feel of cold sharpened steel in his hands.
