Twenty years ago, a barmaid in a harbor town fell for a young sailor who
turned pirate to make his fortune. But what truly became of Black Edward Tew
remains a mystery—one that has just fallen into the lap of freelance sword
jockey Eddie LaCrosse.
For years, Eddie has kept his office above Angelina’s tavern, so when
Angelina herself asks him to find out what happened to the dashing pirate who
stole her heart, he can hardly say no—even though the trail is two decades old.
Some say Black Edward and his ship, The Bloody Angel, went to bottom of
the sea, taking with it a king’s fortune in treasure. Others say he rules a
wealthy, secret pirate kingdom. And a few believe he still sails under a ghostly
flag with a crew of the damned.
To find the truth, and earn his twenty-five gold pieces a day, Eddie must
take to sea in the company of a former pirate queen in search of the infamous
Black Edward Tew…and his even more legendary treasure.
