Englishman Peter Blood, a noble doctor who was imprisoned for attending to a wounded rebel, narrowly escapes the hanging during the turbulent reign of James II.

Blood, who was given a ten-year sentence of servitude on a Barbados plantation, escapes from captivity and courageously begins a career as a pirate, never losing sight of his objectives to clear his record and go back to England.

Sabatini is an exhilarating story of piracy on a grand scale, enhanced by breath-taking naval manoeuvres, narrow escapes, and broadside strikes.

Captain Blood, a swashbuckling classic that brims with looted wealth and maritime adventure, immediately rose to the top of the bestseller list after it was originally released in 1922.

This is no Chronicle of Saints. Nor yet is it a History of Devils. It is a record of certain very human, strenuous men in a very human, strenuous age; a lustful, flamboyant age; an age red with blood and pale with passion at white-heat; an age of steel and velvet, of vivid colour, dazzling light and impenetrable shadow; an age of swift movement, pitiless violence and high endeavour, of sharp antitheses and amazing contrasts.

Rafael Sabatini was an Italian born author best known for romance and adventure novels. Sabatini, who traveled throughout Europe for much of his childhood, was fluent in 5 languages but decided to write in English.

This is a story about a man’s quest for vengeance against two wealthy, snobbish, upper class individuals who’d caused him grief and anguish many years ago.

But, when his “best laid plans” went awry, he found himself in one predicament after another as he tried to rectify the mistakes and mishaps that occurred each time he altered his plans.
