Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton

Pirate Latitudes

Captain Charles Hunter isn’t your ordinary sea captain.  The year is 1665 and Captain Hunter is a privateer in search of riches in the cut-throat world of Jamaica’s Port Royale.  With a nod from the island’s governor, Captain Hunter gathers a select crew to raid the Spanish treasure galleon, El Trinidad, moored in nearby Matanceros harbor.  It’s a dangerous undertaking and Hunter’s crew will be greatly outnumbered.  Will he be able to pull it off?

Pirate Latitudes was a complete manuscript found after Michael Crichton’s death.  It was a fun read, but not nearly as clever as some other Crichton novels I’d read.  But it satisfied a reading challenge by being set in the Caribbean, so it was good choice.
