This long work describes the short-lived pirate "republic" that existed in the Caribbean and around the Bahamas in the early eighteenth century. This "cooperative," as it has also been called, was led by a trio of buccaneers, one of whom was Edward "Blackbeard" Teach. In order to regain control of their colonies, the authorities hired a former privateer to retake the Bahamas and put down the pirates. This amazing tale is adroitly narrated by Lewis Grenville. While his deep, somewhat gravelly yet resonant voice never wavers, his easygoing understated manner, at times, becomes monotonous. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
