Adventure, excitement, romance, danger on the high seas……author Tom Morrisey has put it all together in his captivating new book Pirate Hunter. The skillful interweaving of two stories – 300 years apart in the timeline of history and yet strikingly similar – is an amazing technique that immediately draws the reader in and advances the plot most effectively. I couldn’t put this book down! As the tension mounted in both timelines, I felt somewhat apprehensive about how this was all going to turn out, but there was no need to worry – the ending is terrific, unpredictable, and most satisfying. I highly recommend this book! ~ Lori
