About this title


Blackbeard! For two years, until his untimely death in 1718, the notorious pirate wrecked havoc on Atlantic coastal shipping. Many tales have been told about the bold deeds of this tall and wild sea rover, but few know about a daring crime that linked Blackbeard with the highest levels of government, a crime that would send two colonies to war and foreshadow the American Revolution.

In her page-turning narrative based on a true story, Margaret Hoffman spins a tale of political intrigue, villainy, and romance. Her infamous pirate emerges as a man of considerable charm and gallantry who not only becomes the confidante of the governor of North Carolina, but also wins the heart of a beautiful, young heiress. Legends and myths about Blackbeard continue three centuries after his death, but the true story is the most incredible of all. With the recent discovery of Blackbeard's sunken ship,"Queen Anne's Revenge," this book is sure to become as much a treasure as that ill-fated but much sought after shipwreck.

From the Author:

Pirates, and especially Blackbeard, have always been a subject of intense fascination. But it was not until the discovery of Blackbeard's flagship, the "Queen Anne's Revenge", that there has been a resurgence of interest in Blackbeard unprecedented in America's history. It is to Phil Masters of Intersal and the dive team that discovered the "Queen Anne's Revenge", that I owe the publication of this book. It is not everyday that an author's ship, literally comes in. Blackbeard's forty-gun flagship, the "Queen Anne's Revenge", was the most powerful pirate vessel to ever sail in American waters. It was one of Blackbeard's flotilla of four vessels which blockaded Charleston harbor for a week in May of 1718, finally sinking off Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina (in those days named Topsail Inlet) a month later. The sinking of the Queen Anne's Revenge is described in full in "Chapter Three" of this novel.
