CFBA Tour: Pirate Hunter

Usually, I only participate in these tours if I've read the book ahead of time. This time I haven't seen the book yet -- but have a feeling it's waiting for me. Eric and I both enjoy Tom's books, so when this book came up as an option, there was no question that I wanted to jump on the tour. If you've read it already I'd love to hear what you think. I can't wait to read it. Look for a review later.

ABOUT THE BOOK

High Seas Adventure Meets a High-Tech Quest for Pirate Gold West Indies, 18th century Young Ted Bascombe is rescued by notorious pirate Captain Henry Thatch, finding himself caught up in a world of crime, adventure, and a daily fight for freedom.... Key West, 21st century Marine archaeologist Greg Rhode embarks on a treasure-hunting expedition in the turquoise waters of the Florida Keys, but he's as beguiled by a beautiful diver with different-colored eyes as by the lure of pirate gold...The Hunt Is On! Interweaving these two stories, pro deep-sea diver Tom Morrisey spins a multilayered tale of two young men's quests to escape their past by losing themselves to adventure on the high seas. Romantic and thrilling, this unique novel explores the timeless truth that "where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
