“Pirate Hunter”: From the blue waters of the Caribbean and the Florida Keys to the wind-swept wilds of the Outer Banks, Pirate Hunter combines the romantic popularity of a pirate tale with an inspirational story of modern-day treasure hunters.
Following a captured slave who’s been freed by the sixteenth-century pirate who takes his ship, the novel weaves a rollicking tale of adventure. Paralleling this story in the present are the treasure hunters seeking the gold–and stories–of the past. Greg Rhode–a preacher’s kid who has become a marine archaeologist–hires on to participate in Phil Rackham’s salvage operation in the Florida Keys. He is hoping that Rackham will make him rich, not suspecting the true riches he’ll eventually confront.
