The Bloody Black Flag
A Spider John MysteryBook - 2017
"1722--aboard a pirate ship off the American Colonial Coast. Spider John Rush never wanted to be a pirate, but it had happened and he'd learned to survive in the world of cut and thrust, fight or die. He and his friend Ezra knew that death could come at any moment, from grapeshot or storm winds or the end of a noose. But when Ezra is murdered in cold blood by a shipmate, Spider vows revenge. On a ship where every man is a killer many times over, how can Spider find the man who killed his friend? There is no law here, so if justice is to be done, he must do it. He will have to solve the crime and exact revenge himself. One wrong step will lead to certain death, but Spider is determined to look into the dying eyes of the man who killed his friend, even if it means his own death"-- Provided by publisher.

QuotesAdd a Quote
pg 127 Spider had spent days watching and listening and never saw or heard a damned thing to indicate the two were doing anything more than discussing theology........Spider wondered if perhaps "love thy neighbor" might be sufficient, and whether that simple admonition might be more than most people could handle anyway.
pg 220 Deliberate death delivered by an agent of one world power, just to keep secrets from the hands of another world power, all in the name of wars past and future.....these things Spider could not understand.
