    1. What a excellent book and story.This book read like the 40 thieves.I wholeheartedly enjoyed this book to no end It kept me interested to the last page I was sorry to see it end.I think it took me three days to complete I just could not put it down.I would recommend it to any reader that would enjoy a good sea story It will be a book that will be in my memoryfor a long time.Don


    2. Exceptional StoryWith an intriguing plot, characters of interest, and good descriptions, the story is one of the better nautical stories I ve read recently The tale of treasure, danger, and mysterious woman kept my interest alive throughout.


    3. This was a very poor book The phrases were stiled, the narrative jumped all about, and the story line was weak I was expecting a true sea story, but was disappointed It was a free book and worth it Don t waste your time.
