9780689852978: The Guns of Tortuga

Safe Harbor?
Five months into their undercover search for the pirate Jack Steele, Captain Hunter and the Aurora head for the island of Tortuga to put in for repairs after a battle with a deadly Spanish ship. Davy Shea, now fifteen years old and accepted by the Aurora's crew, continues to help his uncle Patch in the ship's surgery, but Captain Hunter has a special mission for him.
The Captain has learned that captured British officers are being held on the island for ransom from the Crown, and he is determined to rescue those officers, even risking the Aurora's cover. As a servant boy, Davy can easily pass among the various pirate groups thriving on Tortuga.
But as Davy begins to uncover the many secrets and deceptions that shroud this beautiful island, he soon realizes that more is at stake than the lives of a few captured officers. A plan is in the works that will force the pirate hunters on the Aurora to make new alliances...and bring them face to face with former enemies.

About the Author:

Brad Strickland is also the author of Aladdin's Pirate Hunter trilogy as well as many middle-grade novels based on licensed properties, including Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Star Trek.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-In this second book in the series, Davy Shea continues his travels with his Uncle Patch, a surgeon, on the Aurora to find the villainous pirate Jack Steele. When the ship is damaged while waging battle with the Concepcion, the crew heads for Tortuga, a notorious den of pirates, where Captain Hunter hopes to replenish supplies and make repairs. Invited to dinner on the island, the captain discovers that two British officers are being held hostage, and he vows to free them before the Aurora sets sail. An authors' note provides historical context, and a Web site explains pirate lingo and gives background on the story. This fast-paced, action-packed tale of life as an undercover pirate on the high seas provides intrigue, mystery, friendship, and enough battle scenes to appeal to reluctant readers as well as adventure seekers.
